    1. Well this was one bicycle basket full of weird. It emphatically didn't work for me. I'm not even sure what the book wanted to say? I'm not sure if it was for loving yourself or changing yourself. And the plot was bizarre and the writing style was super strange at time, bouncing from being really young sounding up to them drinking and using the F word. So who is the audience? I DON'T KNOW.But they kind of just accept this identity and embrace it. And while I get that, in a way -- like if you take [...]

    2. I loved the Sesame Seade series, a hilarious and smart middle grade mystery trilogy from Clémentine Beauvais. Piglettes shows us (as if we didn't already know) that Clém has a unique voice in fiction. This is her first YA novel, translated into English (by herself, I might add) from her 2015 French novel, Les Petites Reines. Piglettes takes us on an unlikely adventure with three witty, quirky and smart protagonists, like the ones featured in her younger fiction. But now Clém's used her writ [...]

    3. (Note: I received a copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review. Many thanks to NetGalley, Pubishers and author.)This is funny, coming of age YA book about today’s world where girls (any person) are judged by their face, size and shape. it's about 3 ugly girls facing bullies at school, their growing friendship, and travel of course. I liked tone of the book, I was laughing right from the beginning. Overall, this is intriguing, light and easy read. Teens would love it.Read full review o [...]

    4. Piglettes was one of the worst books I have read this year and a huge disappointment I can't even This is correct I didn't even wanted to give it 2 stars this was so generous of me. I have never had so many issues with a book before and I wanted to like this book it had soo much potential and the premise was so intriguing and good and also the cover looks pretty cute. boy have I been so wrong I hated it sorry guys I just did Do not get me wrong the fact that I hated this book does not mean you [...]

    5. Je vous recommande totalement la lecture de cette merveilleuse petite tranche de vie d’adolescentes que la nature a peu gâtées physiquement mais qui ont réussi à se faire néanmoins une place au soleil avec une bonne dose de rêves et de volonté. La plupart du récit se déroule au début du mois de juillet, puisque le but de Mireille et de ses deux copines, Hakima et Astrid, est d’arriver à l’Elysée pour la Garden party du 14 juillet….Il est donc fortement conseillé de le lire e [...]

    6. I came across this on BookTube and it looks soooo cute. Also I highly recommend the Cook Read Create channel on YouTube. Mands, aka The Bookish Manicurist, aka one of my favorite people ever, is one of 3 people I trust implicitly for book reviews and I love that she's vlogging on the regular now. I've already added 3 books based on her June wrap up alone. Just FYI, the other two books I added are: A Cardboard Palace and How to Bee.

    7. This was a rather random pick for me. I was thinking I needed to read more books that take place outside the US, and what better than a book set in France written by a French author. I must say, I am very pleased I chose this book. "I don't understand why you insist on calling yourselves the Three Little Piglettes," Mum groans. "It's a horrible name.""We'll make it beautiful, you'll see. Or better, we'll make it powerful."I have heard people talk about this reclaiming. Taking back something that [...]

    8. Je m'étais gardée cette lecture pour l'été et j'ai bien fait! La plume de Clémentine Beauvais est assassine et tellement drôle, elle touche et pique. Bref on s'en tord les boudins !Ce livre retrace le road trip complètement déjanté de trois adolescentes qui ont été nommées "Les trois Boudins" par leur (gentils) camarades de classe.L'auteur aborde ici des thèmes graves dont nous avons l'impression de ne pas maitriser et tourne le tout en dérision. Le tout est très léger et agréab [...]

    9. Grappig en hartverwarmend jeugdboek over drie meisjes die niet in hun slachtofferrol kruipen nadat ze op sociale media uitgeroepen worden tot "lelijkste meisjes van de school" . Wat volgt, is een meeslepende roadtrip naar Parijs waarin samenhorigheid en creativiteit centraal staan. Mooi!

    10. Piglettes is an adorable and inspiring novel. I would love to share this one with my younger self.Mireille is angry that she got bronze on the schools yearly Ugly list. For the past two years she's won gold, and this year someone took away her #1 spot and now she's in third. Marielle knows how to deal with being called names, and she doesn't let that affect her. But when she confronts the first and second place winners, she realizes that they are not as easy going as her. The three girls band to [...]

    11. Thank you, Pushkin Children's Books, for my advanced review copy of Piglettes. I decided to DNF Piglettes by Clémentine Beauvais at 21 %, after having finished chapter 7 of the advanced reader’s copy.When I started Piglettes I was intrigued by the idea and the synopsis. However, once I started it I quickly realized that this book was just not for me. While the synopsis had intrigued me when I first read it I no longer felt the same excitement over the book’s concept as I had the first time [...]

    12. J'ai aimé le côté humoristique à travers lequel le harcèlement des personnes obèses chez les ados (ici, par la désignation sur FB des boudins d'or, d'argent et de bronze) est traité.L'histoire n'est pas du tout triste, au contraire ! On sourit à chaque page, en découvrant notre narratrice, Mireille, sacrée "boudin de bronze", parler de son obésité et de la manière dont elle gère le regard des autres. Même si elle n'aime pas son corps, même si elle est critiquée, elle prend la v [...]

    13. Ca faisait un moment que je n'étais pas tombée sur une telle pépite de littérature jeunesse ! Clémence Beauvais adresse la grossophobie et le harcèlement avec une justesse et une fraîcheur qui font mouche, en abordant au détour d'un dialogue tous les problèmes de notre société (racisme, sexisme), sans faux semblants. Plus qu'une sympathique comédie servie par le ton de son héroïne cynique et charismatique, Les Petites Reines est une belle histoire d'amitié et d'empowerement !A met [...]

    14. Frais, drôle et moderne, j'ai passé un excellent moment avec ces 3 petites reines ! J'ai aimé le ton décomplexé de l'auteur, ses piques acidulées, ses références, ses prises de position et surtout, la place qu'elle donne à l'intelligence et à l'humour de jeunes filles face au harcèlement et aux diktats sociaux. Une ode à la bonne humeur, indispensable à la construction d'adolescent(e)s !

    15. Ce roman est tout simplement FORMIDABLE. Je ne suis pas une très grande lectrice de littérature jeunesse, mais je me suis plongée dans celui-ci comme si ma vie en dépendait (j'exagère à peine). Les petites reines ce sont donc trois jeunes filles, plutôt moches qui sont élues boudins de l'année par le petit macho du lycée. Plutôt que de se laisser démonter par ce titre cruel, elles deviennent amies, et partent en mission, à vélo sur les routes de France en vendant rien de moins que [...]

    16. Ce roman est une perle de littérature jeunesse, clairement le coup de cœur que je n'attendais pas !Clémentine Beauvais aborde avec une justesse rafraîchissante la grossophobie et le harcèlement (scolaire et en ligne), en y glissant également quelques remarques pertinente sur le sexisme, le racisme, la représentation Le tout est enrobé par une histoire pleine d'humour, de mignonnerie et d'empowerment, et porté par des héroïnes fabuleusement attachantes.

    17. Full review also here: lotsoflivres/2017/07/30/p Piglettes by Clementine Beauvais tells the story of 3 teenagers as they embark on a bike ride across France, as they become friends after being voted the ugliest girls in their school. This story is full of adventure, surprises and hope, all held together with a blossoming friendship that is heartwarming to follow.Recently, I have seen quite a lot of hype about this book and I wasn’t disappointed. This book is such a light-hearted, funny read, d [...]

    18. Zu Beginn des Buches lernen wir Mireille etwas wütend kennen, Astrid und Hakima haben es doch tatsächlich geschafft, ihr den Platz als Wurst Nummer 1 streitig zu machen. Somit ist sie nur noch das dritthässlichste Mädchen ihrer Schule und das passt ihr nicht, denn diese doch sehr fiese Auszeichnung trägt sie sonst mit Würde und viel Humor. Astrid und Hakima gelingt dies aber scheinbar nicht, weshalb die drei Mädchen recht schnell zusammenfinden und wie durch Zufall feststellen, dass alle [...]

    19. Loved this book! It's a tough world for kids with social media these days and these girls overcome the hatred!

    20. What a bizarre little ride. It felt totally uneven, with nearly no character development, but it was so strange and out of left field (and also funny) that I kept going.

    21. J'ai adoré le périple loufoque de ses trois ados élues boudins d'or sur Facebook. Les personnages sont attachants, certains passages sont absolument hilarants et sous couvert d'une comédie légère, les réflexions, notamment féministe, que le roman apporte sont intelligentes et loin des clichés. La fin est émouvante et inattendue. Bref, mon livre préféré depuis le début de l'année, intelligent, hilarant et très bien écrit.
