📚 La note brisée, Jessyca David

Couverture de La note brisée

La note brisée recounts the psychological healing of Emma, an ambitious college student. Her recovery is aided by her friends, loves and... a rivalry. It just goes to show that love and hate may have more in common than you think.

📚 📚 Lamentable, Sam Cyr

Couverture de Lamentable

Lamentable is the story of a repressed homosexual during the first year of university. The well-balanced, self-deprecating story takes place in Gaspésie, Québec. The protagonist is at once endearing and detestable, and the tone is serious yet humorous. In short, it’s a highly captivating novel.

Couverture de Rentrer son ventre et sourire

Rentrer son ventre et sourire tells the story of Élie, one of the country’s most popular influencers. While she creates content to motivate her fans to adopt healthy lifestyle habits, she’s haunted by a realization: what if, by always wanting to be perfect, she’s forgotten what’s truly important?
