Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Could you leave all the things you love for the adventure of a lifetime?

As a junior in high schoool, Megan McNeill Libby left behind the familiar comforts of suburban New England to live abroad as an exchange student. Now, in this charming collection of thoughts and vignettes, she takes readers of every age on a delightful, memorable tour through her year in France. Poignant and endearing, innocent yet wise. Postcards from France captures her adventure in vivid detail: waging war with the French language and the magic moment when she finally understood everyone around her; her wonderfully hilarious attempt at making Thanksgiving dinner--with a deer; her feelings of lonliness on the first day at a foreign school, and so much more. The perfect letter from a friend, Postcards is a rare gem of a book that will delight anyone who has ever dreamed of traveling or living in a foreign country.

Synopsis:

In this charming, heartwarming, and sage real-life account of her yearlong adventure, a high school junior records her experiences as an exchange student in France.

Reading "Postcards from France" is like getting a letter from a friend. Told through the correspondence Megan Libby sent home from Europe, it brings to life her many experiences during her year abroad: her struggles with the language, learning to eat rabbit, her attempt at cooking Thanksgiving dinner (lacking a turkey, she improvises with a deer), and her profound loneliness in a culture where teens rarely get a chance to socialize outside of their highly structured school day.

Refreshing and insightful, Postcards from France is the perfect giftbook for teens and parents who want a true picture of the varied difficulties and infinite rewards of spending time abroad.
