A well written first book that deals with the realities of moving to a new country and some life lessons as well. Jake is a well rounded character who deals with the good and bad the way teens do but uniquely he does a lot of it in a new language, French. There are comical situations , touching ones and a few sad ones. Great book for any teens heading to France for a few months or more or those looking for some insight into what it is like to move to France.
