chat Description
Ms. Smith teaches English to French teenagers. One day her 10th-graders play a strange game where a few students secretly choose a classmate to be “eliminated”, in this case Cécile, and then the rest have to guess “Who killed Cécile?” Then both Cécile and the boy who picked her disappear. Suddenly, it’s not just a game anymore. Anaïs, a girl who often finds herself alone at home and in class, begins to find some disturbing clues.

This novella (3,600 words) was written for American high school students studying French, in level 2. Its basic grammar and vocabulary (950 original words, with only a few vocabulary footnotes) make it easy to understand, but at the same time readers will find themselves fascinated by its subtle plot and psychological depth.

Teresa Torgoff, the author, reads the prologue of the book for this TeachVid resource :)
