Description

 

See below for English description.

Margaret a dix ans et elle se réjouit à l'idée de rentrer à la maison après avoir passé deux ans dans un pensionnat. Mais quand elle retrouve enfin sa famille, sa mère ne la reconnaît pas et crie : « Pas ma fille! » Cet accueil n'est pas celui que Margaret espérait. Elle a oublié la langue de son peuple et a du mal à avaler la nourriture de sa mère. Margaret n'a même pas le droit de jouer avec son amie Agnès parce que les gens trouvent qu'elle ressemble trop aux étrangers détestés. Elle est devenue une étrangère parmi les siens.

Dans ce deuxième livre extraordinaire, Margaret dépeint le portrait de son apprentissage difficile pour retrouver sa place et réconcilier son ancienne personnalité avec la nouvelle.

 

Ten-year-old Margaret can hardly contain her excitement. After two years in a residential boarding school, she is finally headed for home. But when she stands before her family at last, her mother doesn't recognize her, shouting, "Not my girl!"

This was hardly the homecoming Margaret expected.

She has forgotten her people's language and can't stomach her mother's food. She isn;t even allowed to play with her friend Agnes, besause she is now seen as too much like the despised outsiders. She has become a stranger to her own people. In this extaordinary sequel to Fatty Legs (Les bas du pensionnat) Margaret must begin a painful journey of learning how to fit again, how to reconcile her old self with the new.

Original title: A Stranger at Home: A True Story
