French Milk - Lucy Knisley I liked the beginning and I though the story would be more about Paris itself but it seemed to focus more on what was going on with Lucy and not a much about Paris. The synopsis on the back of the book made me think this would be a story about Lucy's relationship with her mother but it focused more on what was going on in Lucy's head. The plot was a little flat, Lucy seemed more focused on her life back home and did not really seem to embrace her life in Paris. When Lucy did explain about her life in Paris it was detailed and interesting, I loved the art in the novel, I thought that Lucy was a really good artist but overall the book was not what I thought it would be and it was a little bit of a letdown.
