Together with psychologist Jonas Mosskin she runs the seminar series “Psychologists reading books/Psychologists watching films” in which they talk about and analyse books and films.

Jägerfeld’s middle grade novel My Royal Grand Golden Life was nominated for the August Prize and shortlisted for the Swedish Radio Children Book’s Award. And in 2021 the sequel My Royal Grand Golden Death is published. Just as in her previous books, Jägerfeld writes an unforgettable story combining magnificent humor and important topics.

Reader’s comments

“I love it. So unbelievably funny and insanely sad at the same time – and here I lie crying.”

“Buy it, read it, love it!”

“Yep, I loved it, and yep, I stretch read it.”

“It is black humor, ironic and at times quite funny, but that feeling of paralyzing grief, bland and misdirected anger is stronger.”

Me on the Floor, Bleeding is the best YA novel I have read in a long time.”
