so there's the problem: a friend of mine (who currently doesn't have any access to the internet) has to pass an important exam, but he still have to read 2 books, one's "french letters" by eileen fairweather and the other is "don't look back" by sandra chick... and the exam is thursday

the problem is that I can't find ANY information on the books, even short summaries are undiscoverable on the internet. Kudos to everybody who can post a short summary or a link to a summary

Google ftw. If you can't find it there, then these books are not on the internet, and likely don't exist.

The library is calling your friend. You know, that place people went to study before the internet. Yes, they do still exist, hard to believe I know.

How would a summary help your friend, And why would they or the teacher chose the book if it's practically non-existent?


a summary's better than nothing, and the teacher actually didn't chose the books, they were on a list where they were chosen by my friend (who didn't know at that time that these book are hard to find...)

If he hasn't read, and doesn't have, the books he needs for an exam on thursday, he doesn't deserve to pass the exam. Just tell him that.

Some teachers pick books that are more obscure just so that lazy children won't run to the internet and look up a summary - it's likely that's what's going on here, hence the lack of sparknotes and such.

I really doubt this, you are talking about French Letters by Eileen Fairweather right? It's out of stock at Barnes and Noble but if I'm sure some bookstore carries it in your area.

If he had checked earlier he might have got a copy from the teacher.

edit: I think you've gone above and beyond what most would do in helping your friend. Side note - I think there's a lack of sparknotes because it's kids' book, classified as adolescent ages 12+

oh, you're right, thx...it's fairweather....
whatever, it's his fault that he haven't looked for the books earlier, asking the pit was just an idea in order to get some information on the books

How's about just going to a shop, and asking if they have it? Borders has every bloody book known to man, and if they don't, they'll order it in for you and have it within maximum of a week.
