Schmais, Libby The Pillow Book of Lotus Lowenstein, 276. Delacorte Press, 2009. Language- PG-13 (17 swears, 0 “f”) Sexual Content- PG-13; Violence- PG; Lotus Lowenstein has a plan to be an existentialist and live in France. When she starts a French club to improve her grades, a boy named Sean comes in, and soon Lotus and her best friend will fight over him and his also-existentialist beliefs. I thought this book was funny and original, and I learned a valuable lesson from it. I enjoyed how much I learned about the French culture, acting, existentialism, and how to not get fat.
