Thirteen-year-old Gregory hates school; he has hated it since he was four years old. Because of his constant bad marks Gregory has been kept in the same class for two years and he is eventually expelled and there is no other school that is prepared to accept him. However, Gregory is a really talented boy and his happiest moments are the ones he spends with his Grandpa Leon in his workshop, helping him and building things. Grandpa is the only one who seems to understand and encourage him. It is through his deep relationship with his grandfather that Gregory is able to find the inspiration that will allow him to overcome his physical and mental fears, when he is finally accepted in a new college.

This is a thought-provoking story that brings to the surface the problem with children like Gregory, who suffer from Attention Deficit Disorder and are caught in an educational system that may not always cater to their needs. Anna Gavalda was a teacher for many years and wrote this novel for all those 'Gregorys' out there who need to be inspired.
