The Elegance Of The Hedgehog By Muriel Barbery

It happens in Paris, at an apartment with rich aristocratic families, a concierge and cleaning ladies.

The twelve and half year old girl living in the fourth floor decides to kill herself and set fire to their apartment when she reaches thirteen. But before she dies; she tries to write down her profound thoughts!

The concierge is a well-read uneducated lady who hides her intelligence.

The third floor owner dies and a Japanese retired guy buys his apartment; that is when everything becomes interesting.
