Loosely based on one of the most notorious crimes of the seventeenth century, The Marquise de Gange by The Marquis de Sade is a neglected classic. Although a departure from his earlier pornographic and libertine works, the novel reads with the same subversive tension of an author plotting against virtue in his distress.
Holly's dream comes true when she gets the opportunity to teach 14 year old children on a freelance base. Her professional life is going splendid and her quiet private life takes a big turn! You will follow her through Vanilla, as you will a few students: Leon and Emma, who are a couple since the Summer holiday; the popular yet modest Ann, who can draw the most beautiful pictures and writes poems, Henri, who is coming out of the closet and finds his first love and Julian, whose uncle has got a clear point of view about his sexual orientation.
