Victor is a failure at everything – school, girls, making his dad feel better about his mother having left them. When Marie-Jose, the smartest girl in the class and musical prodigy, starts helping him with his maths homework, there must be something she wants in return.
A memorable coming-of-age story, told with humour and tenderness, perfect for fans of Frank Cottrell Boyce, Jacqueline Wilson and Lara Williamson.
A film adaptation of the novel will be released in France and Germany in October 2016.
A thought-provoking and beautifully written debut by a highly regarded author.
