(en) France, UCL AL #318 - Culture, Read: the Fox and the Crown. Teenage novel (ca, de, it, fr, pt)[machine translation]

Date Thu, 29 Jul 2021 10:55:55 +0300

It starts very badly: Ana, 10, cries hot tears at the bedside of her grandmother, who is dying. Here is our heroine totally alone in the world. She decides to try her luck in the big neighboring town, and sets out. It's the start of a host of thrilling adventures! ---- First a street child, she finds a form of security by integrating a gang of kids, who teach her the joy of the collective and the art of robbing the bourgeois. Chance will push her to become the protege of a cultivated naturalist, who takes her to France and completes the very good education that her grandmother had started to give her. ---- It is therefore far from her native country, and many years later, that she discovers that her grandmother was in fact protecting her from a terrible secret ... She will then throw herself headlong into a fight against an ugly tyrant! (And now we're not even halfway through the book.)

You got it, the plot is full of twists and turns. Whether you are a teenager or an adult, Yann Fastier brings us brilliantly alongside his heroine, really nice, and a host of other colorful characters. Above all, a few elements that are still often unusual in great adventure novels for teenagers are distilled here and there, which decompartmentalize certain imaginations.

Without going into too much detail not to disclose anything, we will still mention a few: the main love story (and what a story!) Is played between two women. A victim of an irreparable act understands that revenge would only add blood to blood, and shows mercy. A princess, not attracted to power, renounces her crown. And the icing (red) on the cake, there is even a small criticism of representative democracy.

In short, a great time, from 13 years old and beyond !!
