Ten-year-old Margaret can hardly contain her excitement. After two years in a residential boarding school, she is finally headed for home. But when she stands before her family at last, her mother doesn't recognize her, shouting, "Not my girl!"

This was hardly the homecoming Margaret expected.

She has forgotten her people's language and can't stomach her mother's food. She isn;t even allowed to play with her friend Agnes, besause she is now seen as too much like the despised outsiders. She has become a stranger to her own people. In this extaordinary sequel to Fatty Legs ( Les bas du pensionnat ) Margaret must begin a painful journey of learning how to fit again, how to reconcile her old self with the new.
