The young jury has rendered its verdict.

A coveted literary prize, the Goncourt des lycéens was awarded this Thursday to Sabyl Ghoussoub for her novel


published by Stock.

The announcement of the winner was made shortly before 1 p.m. from the salons of the town hall of Rennes, the cradle of the prize.

The Goncourt high school students will be given to Sabyl Ghoussoub at 7 p.m. at the Ministry of National Education.

In his second novel, the 34-year-old Franco-Lebanese journalist offers a reflection on the family and immigration, by questioning his parents who came to settle in 1975 in Paris when the war was going to ravage their country.
