Billie is a girl from the wrong side of the tracks, willing to do anything to escape her abusive family and the desperate poverty they live in. Franck is a bright and sensitive boy damaged by a bigoted father and a mother anesthetised by anti-depressants. Ostracised and bullied at school, they find each other when a drama project requires them to perform an iconic piece of French literature... The story of their friendship is told by Billie in flashbacks, when she and Franck are trapped in the Cevennes Mountains.

About the Publisher

Europa Editions

Europa Editions

Europa Editions is an independent publisher of literary fiction, non-fiction, and high-end crime fiction based in New York and London. The company was founded in 2005 by Sandro Ferri and Sandra Ozzola Ferri, who are also the owners and publishers of the Italian press, Edizioni E/O. The idea behind the creation of Europa Editions was to capitalize on Edizioni E/O’s deep roots in European publishing to bring fresh voices to the American and British markets and to provide quality English editions of international literature that had a distinct look and consistently high level of editorial standards. The Europa catalog is eclectic, reflecting the founders’ belief that dialogue between nations and cultures is of vital importance and that this exchange is facilitated by literature chosen not only for its ability to entertain and fascinate, but also to inform and enlighten.
