About the book: 
Us Against You  tells the story of the months after the terrible events that shook Beartown last spring. Best friends Maya and Ana spend the summer on a hidden island, trying to leave the world behind, but nothing goes as they hope. Beartown and neighbouring Hed's rivalry grows into a furious struggle for money, power, and survival that explodes as their hockey teams meet. When a player's most closely guarded secret is revealed, a whole community is forced to show what it really wants to stand for.
 
They will say that violence came to Beartown that year, but it will be a lie. The violence was already there.
 
Fredrik Backman's Us Against You,  the stand alone sequel to Beartown,  is a powerful depiction of the poignant and striking relationships of a small town. It's a story about loyalty, friendship, and a love that challenges everything.
