Read full description of the books:
Dans le petit village irlandais de Coolhar, Shell tente d'être une lycéenne comme les autres. Mais élever Trix et Jimmy, ses petits frère et soeur, tout en les protégeant d'un père alcoolique et violent, n'est pas un quotidien ordinaire pour une jeune fille de quinze ans.
Pourtant, Shell ressent profondément la joie d'exister.
D'où lui vient cette force incroyable qui la sauve, même quand l'Irlande entière la montre du doigt ?
