Summary

Epigram Books Fiction Prize 2015 Longlist 
 
Devout Catholic school teacher Annabelle Thong never thought her chastity was a liability – until she runs away to Paris to find Prince Charming. 
 
Enrolling herself at the Sorbonne, she meets the suave Patrick Dudoigt, but he's the one temptation she MUST resist. Annabelle's belief system is challenged on all fronts, and her na?veté is seen as gauche in the City of Love. Guilt and confusion make for dangerous bedfellows, and when her fellow university students enthusiastically combine reading and rioting, Annabelle can't help but wonder if everyone's gone mad – or is it just her?  
 
Annabelle Thong takes a hilarious look at the sparks that fly when East meets West, and the passions these ignite.
