As a parent here in France, I want to thank you for pointing out that there are many lies in that book! French kids are still first and foremost kids, and can act like little shits just as much as kids of any other nationality. My husband, who was a holy terror as a child, is proof.

is a writer & worrier. She recently published her first novel, “Hearts at Dawn”, a “Beauty & the Beast” retelling that takes place in Paris, her adopted home.
