About the author: Teresa Louise Torgoff has long known all kinds of teenagers, as a bi-cultural kid herself, then a lawyer advocating for youth in trouble in France, and now a secondary school French teacher in Virginia, where she has been teaching for 7 years. She wrote these books not only as material appropriate for her students’ learning level, but also as reading they would find compelling. Like her classroom teaching, these texts are based on a comprehensive approach that favors actively drawing students into a language from the start, so that they enjoy and get comfortable using it, and then seek to master its rules.
