A short novel about the future

This short story [in Swedish] was written by three 15-year-olds living in Stockholm. One of them is Robins son. This was part of their year nine internship, which took place during December 2021. Their task was to write a short story about the future. It would answer the question: what do you think life might look like for a 15-year-old in Sweden in 2042?
