The new novel by the author of the million-copy bestseller The Diary of Aurélie Laflamme! Over 15,000 copies sold in Québec only!

After the loss of illusions, is it still possible to be open to love? While on holiday with her lover, Sarah, a publicist in her early thirties, is dumbfounded when he announces without any warning that he's leaving her. The young woman suddenly realizes the scale of the illusions she has harboured with regard to their relationship. Feeling hurt, she decides to put love behind her and throw herself into her work. Seven years later, still single, Sarah continues to choose professional success over the possibility of romantic failure. But... Does love really have just one face? Can you really lock up your heart and throw away the key for a lifetime? Can reality sometimes be more beautiful than illusion?


India Desjardins, author

India Desjardins loves chocolate, doesn't like having to move to a new home, has invented lots of reasons not to go camping, makes at least three mistakes a day and has a completely uncontrollable brain. Here, the comparison ends with Aurélie Laflamme, one of the biggest hits in Quebec literature! 8 volumes, a million copies sold, 2 successful teen movies. Rights sold to France, Portugal, Italy, Lithuania, Hungary and Germany (Kosmos Verlag, under the name Das verdrehte Leben der Amélie). Following a ten-year career in journalism, the author began doing what she most likes to do: writing fiction. Le journal d'Aurélie Laflamme is written for teenagers, an audience that she particularly likes. Her book Le Noël de Marguerite (illustrations by Pascal Blanchet) won the prestigious 2014 Ragazzi award for fiction at the Bologna Children's Book Fair.
