“6 Potes en 3ème” by Sophie Laroche
This article has been written by Karim Tounkara as part of our Semaine de Livre series of blog posts. Karim Tounkara is a student just finishing studying at Mamaroneck High School, currently volunteering at Alliance Française of Westchester to help our members and all local Francophiles find out more about some of the best books they can borrow from our library. If you’re interested in borrowing some of these books, please ask for further information at our front desk, or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As you read the novel you will quickly pick your favorite characters. But as the story progresses and they grow and change, for better or
for worse your opinions on each of them will different than the ones you started with. Laroche does a great job of showing them mature in
the span of a year as their growth is evident at the end of the book.
This book targets younger audiences as it has a middle/high school setting but I think it is a great book for anyone who is learning French
or has an interest in French culture. The characters use of slang and casual language helps French learners get a look at the less formal
side of French that is not really shown in textbooks.
