The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery

Rene is the 50ish concierge of a posh hotel in Paris. She is extremely intelligent, but rather plain looking. Paloma is a highly intelligent twelve year old bent on burning down this same hotel and committing suicide. Each tells her own story. As their paths cross they form a special friendship and teach each other some valuable lessons on life and love.
