Summary
Isidore Mazal is eleven years old, the youngest of six siblings living in a small French town and he doesn't quite fit in. Berenice, Aurore, and Leonard are on track to have doctorates by age twenty-four. Jeremie performs with a symphony, and Simone, older than Isidore by eighteen months, expects a great career as a novelist. The only time they leave their rooms is to gather on the couch and dissect prime-time television dramas in light of Aristotle's Poetics. Isidore has never skipped a grade or written a dissertation, but he notices things the others don't and asks questions they fear to ask. So when tragedy strikes the Mazal family, Isidore is the only one to recognize how everyone is struggling with their grief, and perhaps the only one who can help them, if he doesn't run away from home first. "How to behave in a crowd" immerses readers in the interior life of a boy puzzled by adulthood and beginning to realize that the adults around him are just as lost
