About the book:

Barbara Frischmuth portrays the confusion teenagers face when caught in a strict pedagogical system which does not encourage independence of spirit or thought. Life for the young charges in the convent is 'schooling' with a vengeance: a rigid and authoritarian system inculcates the girls with answers to all the problems of life, Yet, the young protagonist prevails, and in the final chapter she communicates in a voice completely her own, marking the dramatic shift away from her oppressive tutelage to the first stirrings of genuinely critical self-awareness.
