Fouad Laroui is a popular novelist and poet from the Atlas mountains.  A child prodigy at this primary school his teacher ensured that he gained a scholarship at the French Lycée Lyautey in Casablanca.

Leaving his family behind him at the age of ten he turns up at the lycée with a battered suitcase and as the youngest student in the school and a native Moroccan to boot he has a hard time of it. 

Initially feeling alienated from his classmates, by dint of his desire to read and learn, he gradually becomes accepted.

A heartwarming story with a lot to commend it to present day readers who often don't realize the trauma of young people operating in an essentially foreign culture.
