When the students arrive they are place in different surrounding areas & must learn the French ways. As they go through their year of studies, they learn that things aren't always what they seem to be & how to make the most of life.
This was a most pleasant novel to read, to see how each one dealt with & went through their ordeal & what their outcome was.
This author told of a younger time in the lives of all of us whom wanted to go abroad to study & live THE life.
Yes, thank you for a enjoyable read.
I know it's her memoir and she could've rewritten herself as a true heroine. Yet she didn't. Love how she has accepted who she is & happy with herself. An example: she cries to get her way!!! Not in a manipulative way, but more like "I've tried every which way I could've, but I couldn't get it done :( Please help me :( "
Not all girls have learned that real tears ~ heartfelt tears ~ can be an unbeatable weapon!
