GOING UP IN 2019-2020

The Blue of Bees is a story of rage and the determination of a child to find her place in the world of exile.

The story is told between a carefree France and a tormented Argentina in the 1970s. A little girl has to leave her country. Her parents, political activists, are pursued by the military dictatorship.
In Argentina, she hangs all her hopes on the Paris she imagines, with its Eiffel Tower and its booksellers. However, when she arrives, she finds her mother’s home is in the ghetto of Blanc-Mesnil.

“ It’s not Paris, but it’s really close” she writes to her friends.
At school, she is teased for her accent. What does she have to do to be like “all” the other children? “
