French Edinburgh

Behind Our Skin

When Camille transfers to London, she finds herself blissfully following a well-travelled road. She left her country to discover and grow, yet her reality slowly narrows. But when complications with her baby arise, she needs to truthfully engage with the society that has welcomed her. Naysam arrives at seventeen in France as a foreign student with a suitcase and a heart filled with books – thinking she will finally live the stories of her favourite fictional characters, and find a home. But the reality of immigration documents, economic and social survival quickly take the best of her.
