A couple of years ago, I took a French class in which we participated in Le concours littéraire au Collège or something like that and we had to evaluate 5 books and this is one of them. I think it won too but that wouldn't have been my pick.

A very poignant emotional tale of a dwarf woman and her tribulations in life. Excellent perception and lines
