by Margot P (Mandeville, LA): I love books like this-deceptively simple, straightforward plot, yet laced with a tremendous amount of dark, psychological elements. Two very smart, yet very bored young girls in post war southern France try to make sense of all the broken lives around them by playing a dangerous game that has life altering consequences. I think this would be an excellent book club choice for groups that enjoy serious discussions. There are so many themes and different ways of interpreting the characters’ actions!
