Piglettes (Paperback)Clementine Beauvais (author,translator)
- In stock
Mireille, Astrid and Hakima have just been voted the three ugliest girls in school by their classmates on Facebook. But does that mean they're going to sit around crying about it?...
Well, maybe a little, but not for long!
Climbing onto their bikes, the friends set off on a summer roadtrip to Paris. The girls will find fame, friendship and happiness on their journey, and still have time to eat a mountain of food (and drink the odd glass of wine) along the way. But will they really be able to leave all their troubles behind?
Piglettes is a hilarious, beautiful and uplifting story of three girls who are determined not to let online bullying get them down.
