Noemie is a French exchange student who has just left her home to go to a new university. Everything around her is strange and new, and she is very unsure of herself. Struggling to find herself in the new situation, she has fantasy dreams that mimic her search for adulthood. Eventually she begins to make new friends and adjust, but will she be able to let go of her past.
One of the cool things about this book was that it was in two languages- French and English, at least at the beginning. I think the book started out with a good idea, but it had a mediocre finish. An interesting read, but not overly good.
