The Lost Estate (Le Grand Meaulnes) – Alain-Fournier

Published in 1912, two years before the author fell in battle during WWI, this novel is a fairytale-like look into teen longing and belonging.

Our main character narrates the adventure of his boyhood best friend who, after getting lost in rural France, attends a magical party that will forever determine the direction of his life. A sad fairy tale about love, loss, and family.
