Une détermination sans limite (French), by Theresa Marrama
Valérie, a 14-year-old girl is different from her peers, mostly because she is interested in activities that are different than what she is “supposed” to like. She wants to try things that other girls tend to shy away from, for whatever reasons. Tired of feeling limited, Valérie shares her frustrations with her teacher, Mrs. Reid. Inspired by Mrs. Reid's advice, Valérie creates a list of five activities she wants to try. On the way to accomplishing her goals, she faces obstacles and encounters ridicule from her family, boys, and girls. Still, will Valérie learn that there are limits based on gender expectations?
