            Is your child a “dunce”? Do you have no idea what to do about it? If so this novel is for you!
            It’s the return of the ordinary, upper-middle-class Parisian family (researcher father, ophthalmologist mother, and their two children). After a summer vacation boosted with "summer workbooks," Felix, the youngest, enters 6th grade at a new middle school, and the family balance starts to crack little by little. Because Felix, who is... It’s the return of the ordinary, upper-middle-class Parisian family (researcher father, ophthalmologist mother, and their two children). After a summer vacation boosted with "summer workbooks," Felix, the youngest, enters 6th grade at a new middle school, and the family balance starts to crack little by little. Because Felix, who is in no way a rebel but totally apathetic nonetheless, is also very, very bad student. This fact enrages his father, for whom academic excellence is self-evident and not up for debate. It horrifies his older sister, a brilliant high school senior who doesn’t understand why the whole family is making their lives miserable. And it throws his mother into a complete panic, bringing back the nightmare of her own poor performance at school, which she has always carefully hidden from her family. When the second trimester begins, each member of the family is on the verge of a nervous breakdown, and in this cacophony where no one can talk to each other, it’s Felix, paradoxically, who seems the calmest...
            Punctuated by the three trimesters of the French school year and told mainly from the point of view of Charlotte, the mother—who tries to reassure herself by summoning great "dunces" who later succeeded in life, from Einstein to French writer Daniel Pennac, by way of Edison and Richard Branson—this novel uses humor and a self-deprecation to tackle a subject that’s a source of insomnia and conflict for many parents: the anxiety of seeing one’s offspring fail in school and all the abuses to which that anxiety leads. We believe it.
