Witty, acerbic, straight talking – and set in Paris. Mia, a young translator, is short on confidence and experience. For a perceptive girl, she has no idea how people around her really view her. This, coupled with her journey of self-discovery (fraught with stumbling blocks thanks to so-called friends), provides the main focus and pull of this book. Her down-to-earth, coarse humour could have come straight from my mouth! I loved it.
