Coup de coeur
Coup de coeur (Children's), by Sylvia

We really enjoyed this story, in particular, we liked the main character called Hugo who is autistic and curious about maps of the underground. It's a real adventure story (based in Paris) about how friendship is formed through unusual circumstances.

Boy Underground is a powerful adventure story about Hugo, an autistic boy who decides to go all the way into the Paris underground to find a place where he belongs. For Hugo, the world can be too loud and bright. He likes the quiet.

He likes the dark. And he loves maps. When Hugo learns that there's a whole other world under Paris, a network of tunnels, quarries and catacombs mapped beneath his feet, he sets off on an adventure.

Navigating secret passages, narrowly escaping robbers and returning to old friends, Hugo discovers more than just buried treasure ...
