Description

A wickedly funny and life-affirming coming-of-age roadtrip story – winner of France’s biggest prize for teen and YA fiction

Mireille, Astrid and Hakima have just been voted the three ugliest girls in school by their classmates on Facebook. But does that mean they’re going to sit around crying about it?…

Well, maybe a little, but not for long! Climbing onto their bikes, the friends set off on a summer roadtrip to Paris. The girls will find fame, friendship and happiness on their journey, and still have time to eat a mountain of food (and drink the odd glass of wine) along the way. But will they really be able to leave all their troubles behind?

Piglettes is a hilarious, beautiful and uplifting story of three girls who are determined not to let online bullying get them down.

Publisher Review

A masterpiece of acerbic wit, a sharp comedy, full of life... The sort of novel that gives you wings Telerama A jubilant novel that will make you smile. A true joy Le Monde Stands out for its humorous style, ridiculing cruelty, malice and obsession with physical appearance. The most beautiful novel of the season Elle A joyful novel, a superb victory of intelligence over crass stupidity... 270 pages of happiness! Livresse des mots An explosion of joy, humour, life and reality... I couldn't have hoped for any more. This novel is a unique marvel Le souffle des mots I will never be able to do justice in words to all the emotions that flooded me when I read Three Little Piglettes. A wave of love and laughter, a melting heart. My readers, I tell you: this book is a nugget of gold Mille vies en une
