Product description


A poignant story of a young homeless girl, living in the Paris Metro. Ambitious and challenging reading. -- Books Magazine, Christmas 2001

An unusual and powerful novel that explores the dark underside of Paris’ beautiful façade… a moving and engrossing work about vulnerability and hope -- The Bookseller

Highly atmospheric and engagingly readable. -- Irish Times

Part odyssey and part cautionary tale. -- Times Educational Supplement

Richemont’s novel ... does not shirk the issues of refugees and prejudice. It is a terrific page-turner. -- The Guardian

From the Publisher

The inspiration for FOR MARITSA, WITH LOVE came during the two years when Enid lived in Paris and encountered a Romanian gipsy girl, who was to become the complex, beguiling and utterly unforgettable Maritsa. Maritsa is a young gipsy girl, spending her days jumping on and off the Paris Metro, begging for a living. She knows how to melt rich commuters’ hearts without unduly disturbing their day. At first, she’s content, but then Maritsa catches a glimpse of a different world, just beyond her grasp. Or is it? A man and his pretty wife offer her a screen test for a movie. For Maritsa, it’s a dream come true. Fame is just around the corner, along with money and, best of all, beautiful clothes. But Maritsa’s dreams are about to take her into a dark and dangerous world. A world from which, once she enters, there may be no return. FOR MARITSA, WITH LOVE is one of the most haunting novels for teenagers you’ll read this year. Enid Richemont’s dazzling language and compelling characterisation perfectly evokes the heady world of lowlife Paris.
