Gamer is a series for teens that appeals to both girls and boys. Alternating between scenes in the virtual world and scenes of everyday life, this series is already a great success and the first volume was selected for the prestigious Booksellers’ Prize of Quebec.

We follow the adventures of Laurie, a 14-year-old girl who is a talented gamer. Outspoken, a skater, good at math, she is clearly different from classical heroines of teen novels. We follow her and her friends as she attempts to fit in at her new school, leading a team of video game players to numerous victories in tournaments.

A realistic series that draws on new technologies for adventures on the verge of science fiction.

5 volumes published.
6th volume scheduled for autumn 2018.
Several other books planned.
