Summary
Normandy, France, 1970s. Anne is transitioning from middle school to high school. She expresses her feelings about her parents, her education, and her sexual encounters, growing more mature but also conflicted and unhappy. In leaving behind the innocence of her middle school years, Anne must navigate the often-confusing signals she receives from boys, while also moving further away from her parents as she surpasses their educational level and worldview.-- Adapted from back cover.
