While there are no immediate repercussions resulting from her flight, as news of the tragic event spreads and TV stations, papers and radio talk of nothing else for days, she is assailed by a growing sense of guilt.

"Découvrant que Fadila ne sait ni lire ni écrire, Édith entrevoit à quel point la vie est compliquée pour un analphabète et combien c'est humiliant. Elle lui propose de lui apprendre à lire le français. Fadila n'est pas jeune. Édith n'est pas entraînée. L'apprentissage s'avère difficile. Ce qui semblait acquis un jour est oublié la semaine suivante. Si Fadila a tant de mal à progresser, c'est que sa vie entière est difficile. Ce n'est pas une marginale. Elle a une famille, un toit, du travail. Mais la violence a marqué son rapport aux autres, depuis l'adolescence. Elle a de la rancoeur contre son Maroc natal et, en France, elle ne se fait pas à la solitude. Elle vit dans une perpétuelle inquiétude. Édith, de son côté, se sent de plus en plus démunie dans cette aventure dont elle a pris la responsabilité et qui va l'entraîner beaucoup plus loin qu'elle n'aurait cru. Une amitié singulière, rugueuse et douce, amère, cocasse."--P. [4] of cover
