Sanne and Lemme are siblings in a traditional reindeer-herding family. The brother Lemme loves dirt biking and is eagerly looking forward to the new dirt bike track now under construction. In town, his sister Sanne meets a delirious man who babbles something incomprehensible about the "devil's … LES MER children." After their father's outburst at the dinner table about how reckless young people are and how the grazing lands that the reindeer need are being destroyed by the new dirt bike track, Lemme leaves in a huff. Sanne follows and hops onto the dirt bike behind him. The teenagers disappear without a trace, and back at home their parents are consumed by grief and despair. Where are they, what happened? All that was found was Lemme's dirt bike at the construction site for the new track. In the novel In Between Worlds, the writer weaves together elements of contemporary reality and Sami beliefs to form a mysterious twilight world. In Between Worlds is a translation of Máret Ánne Sara's debut book, Ilmmiid gaskkas, published in the Sámi language in 2013. The follow-up novel Doaresbealde doali came out in Sámi in 2014. Máret Ánne Sara, a Sámi writer and artist with a unique contemporary artistic style, grew up in a reindeer-herding family. She now works and lives in her hometown of Kautokeino in Northern Norway.
