So what happens when a spoiled teenager is forced to grow up and refuses her new stepmother? Apparently, some pretty evil shit. Cécile is not happy with the rigid lifestyle of her new mater familias Anne and doesn't waste a single opportunity to show her disdain. Even though she admires the consistency and upper class aesthetics of Anne.
I would say that this book is interesting because of the opposition between quick passions, represented by Elisa and the father of Cécile, and the long-lasting engagement of a real relationship. I would say that this book is interesting because of this reason, but certainly not groundbreaking. No earthquakes here.
I can't even be bothered to write a decent review here. Nothing spectacular. Go read Boris Vian.
