Further information on this book

Siri lives in France together with her older brother and her parents, who have a hotel in the countryside, where many different people stop briefly to rest on their way to somewhere else. Siri loves her life there, but in the year she turns ten everything starts to be difficult: her parents argue a lot and the hotel is not going very well. Siri is afraid that her parents will divorce and that the hotel will be sold; she needs a miracle to sort things out…

Sharply written, with nice descriptions and funny dialogues, a novel for young readers which does not stop on the surface but has a deep insight of the emotional world of a little girl.
