A well written YA novel set in France. An American boy and his father move to France after his mother dies. I enjoyed Holingue's descriptive writing, and her use of music throughout the storyline. Set in the 1970's, Scott and Sylvie alternate narration, but this does not make the story confusing. Both characters are likable. The background of France and the Vietnam War, and the struggles that the characters are going through make this a good read for adults as well as young adults.
