The Girl Who Reads on the Métro by Christine Féret-Fleury
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
There's nothing really new in this story about a socially reclusive young woman who becomes friendly with an even more reclusive bookseller, but oh, is it charming. The "bibliotherapy via passeur" idea is simply perfect and warms my heart. Where are those people in my life? And how can I be like that in theirs? The title and author dropping made me want to re-read so many books. Most of the characters are lightly drawn, with only Juliette having any depth or color. That rarely works but here it does. Such a wonderful back-to-school read.
