Her big breakthrough, however, came with the YA novel Elke dag een druppel gif (A Drop of Poison Every Day), about a boy growing up in a Dutch family of Nazi sympathizers during WWII. This book received a great deal of acclaim, winning the Thea Beckman Prize in 2015, the Dutch award for the best historical children’s book.
