b>'There's an elegance to Drake's writing that marks her out as a writer to be reckoned with and she shows fearlessness as she explores the mind of that most troublesome of creatures, the teenage boy . . . I Love You Too Much is a considerable achievement.' John Boyne/b>In the sixth arrondissement, thirteen-year-old Paul is adrift in a sea of wealth, pretence and an obsession with status. Struggling with a self-absorbed mother who doesn't pay him any attention and her new boyfriend Gabriel who is chasing his dream of becoming a rockstar, all while trying to form a connection with his own narcissistic father, Paul is desperate to be loved. Always overlooked, it is only a matter of time before he sees something he isn't supposed to see . . .Longing for connection, Paul comforts himself with the beauty of Paris - gorging on its sweet confections and elegant patisseries - and in an unlikely friendship with his rebellious classmate, Scarlett.A moving story set in one of the world's most beautiful cities, I Love You Too Much by Alicia Drake is told with humour, grace and unflinching honesty.
