Product Details


“This beautiful and funny book explores the troubles and triumphs of being a teen through the eyes of a witty, philosophical, and slightly awkward teen.  Beauvais goes above and beyond to appeal to readers while addressing many relevant issues in society including cyber-bullying, racism, and self-image.  Mireille’s voice and character are wonderfully authentic with unflappable confidence and inelegant missteps mixed together for a potent storyteller on a journey of self-discovery. . . Love laughing and cringing?  This book is for you!” — Melissa McCleary, Pembroke Public Library, via Youth Services Book Review

“Warm-hearted, uplifting and an excellent lesson in handling online bullies.” — Sunday Express

“A rich and intelligent read… life-affirming.” — The Bookbag

“This book is a treasure – a tale about true friendship and standing up for yourself narrated by one of the wittiest, sharpest teen girl voices I have ever had the pleasure of reading. It made me want to pull my bike out of the garage and ride through the streets yelling about lady power. I absolutely adored this story.” — Jennifer Mathieu, author of Moxie

Piglettes is a joy… There are moments in it that had me in raptures and moments that had me in tears… What an utter treat this book is. I want to wrap my arms around it and never let it go.” —
Did You Ever Stop to Think?

“I can’t tell you how much I loved this… It is fierce and funny and positive and political and beautifully written… This is exactly the kind of book our young adults need and deserve.” —
Rhino Reads

“Brilliant and bonkers and incredibly charming and very, very French. J’adore.” — Lisa Williamson, author of The Art of Being Normal 
“A delightful book, but also a moving and important one. I hope it finds the huge readership it deserves.” — Anthony McGowan, author of The Bare Bum Gang and the Football Face-off

Piglettes touched me. Poignant, clever writing that never forgets its humour nor does it lose its heart. Plus sausages. Who DOESN’T like sausages.” — The Copper Boom
“Funny uplifting and adorable.” — CosyReads

“First and foremost a wondrous celebration of being a girl, and of female friendship.” — Library Mice

“Three girls are told they are ugly, so they set out on a phenomenal journey, and promise to achieve great things. If that isn’t uplifting, I’ve got two pink ears and a curly tail.” — Book Murmuration

“I adore Clém’s writing and so I can’t wait to get stuck into this tale of three friends and their summer adventures.” — Pretty Books

“A spectacular read… I’d love a sequel to this because I didn’t want the book to end.” — Nayu’s Reading Corner

“The morals are what struck me the most. This book shows that it isn’t worth it to let others’ words make you feel upset, and I loved that message.” — KDrewkTheBookworm

“A masterpiece of acerbic wit, a sharp comedy, full of life… The sort of novel that gives you wings.” Télérama 

“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
