Girl's Body

  • Agathe's summer holidays are not the same as usual: her best friend, Sofiane has a girl friend, her body is changing and so is the attitude of boys, her relationship with her mum is more and more complicated, and she can't explain how she feels...

    During a party playing a stupid game, Warren kisses her without her consent, in front of everybody. Her first kiss, stolen from her. Thanks to boxing and her new friend Billie, she will gain self-esteem and refuse not to be respected.

    A striking and sensitive style for this story that shows that sexism is in all parts of everyday life, and that girls can demand respect.

    "This novels does all teenage girls justice, with a simple style and chapters as quick  as punches that tell all about the complexity of that age". - Institut international Charles Perrault
