This French novel was a BEST SELLER in France in 2005. It moved a lot of copies, and was translated in many languages.
This is a very simply written story, but the actual story is so touching and so raw; so true, that you feel drown to it!
I really enjoyed the ways that Guène, the writer was using the French she understands and uses every day. It´s not every day that we have a Best Seller in France that is not in the language of Molière... I think I might know a couple of Academicians back in Paris who are still pulling their hair off their heads because of that novel!
If you ware interested in French Urban settings, and want to understand what a teenager in the suburbs of Paris feels like on a daily basis, than read this book!
If you are an French academician who does not understand how people can speak with such a colorful language; read this book: It might open you mind!
Touching, grabbing and succulent story...
