Backcountry Mauritius island

Sensitive, a book from Shenaz Patel

Preparing my move, on a storage at the end of a shelf , I found ” Sensitive ” , this beautiful book in which I discovered all the talent of Shenaz Patel. The opportunity is perfect to write a little post on it ,
In this book written in the first person , a Mauritian girl writes to ” bon dié ” ( God ) : she tells him her life and tells him , somewhat naively, her thoughts.
With chosen words , concise and precise sentences, this little girl ‘s life is discovered : her school teacher , her friends, the factory next door that will soon close , and also the threatening shadow of her stepfather .
In the end, mastered writing which gives a very touching book, which is aptly named . A must read!
