Zazoo, almost fourteen, is Vietnamese by birth but feels entirely French. She lives with her adoptive grandfather, who brought her form Vietnam to his village in France when she was just two years old. Life with Grand-Pierre has always been filled with poetry and shared adventure, following the predictable rhythms of the season. Then one misty October morning, a boy on a bicycle rides into Ago's small French village and asks a question from which many stories begin to unfold.

Marius, Zazoo's bicycle boy, and the local pharmacist turn out to have surprising connections with each other, and with Zazoo and Grand-Pierre. With the help of new an old friends, Zazoo makes the bittersweet discovery that the ghosts of two wars, World War II and the Vietnam War, continue to haunt the people Zazoo loves.

Amid old secrets revealed and rifts healed, a thirteen-year-old Vietnamese orphan raised in rural France by her aging "Grand-Pierre" learns about life, death, and love.

    " Gorgeously written--a unique and well-told story of 2 time periods in France--one of them being WWII's "awful time". "

    " The writing is richly evocative, redolent of time and place. History, emotion, and true love wound around the truths of things. I realize this doesn't describe it much, but it is one of the best YA titles ever. "

    " Perhaps if the author had been less concerened about harping on his moral, than this would have been better. I liked the story fairly well, but the fact that he repeatedly told you to that "this is the moral of the story" (more or less) got really old really fast. "

    " The history and plot are a little contrived and predictable. Otherwise it had simply beautiful imagery and the quaintest characters. "
