Arnold and Alia are twins who live with their two doting fathers. While Arnold prefers to keep a low profile and discreetly draws muscular superheroes, Alia talks loud and clear about her unique family. As their 13th birthday approaches, their fathers write 13 letters that will reveal which of the two men is their biological father. Through the daily tribulations, genetic deductions and television series that they don’t want to miss, the twins discover that their family’s real love story is far better than the ones they watch compulsively on television.


Simon Boulerice, author

Since graduating from the literature and theatre program at Collège Lionel-Groulx in Montreal, multidisciplinary artist Simon Boulerice has been writing almost non-stop, churning out poems, plays, a Web series and several novels for all ages. But don’t blame him: he’s just trying to reach out and connect with as many people as he can.


  • Simon Boulerice serves up another gem here, a tribute once again to children’s literature from Quebec. - La bibliomaniaque
  • This is a very nice gift for his young readers… The book is tender, funny, human and brimming with love, in short, a novel in the image of its creator! - MatTV
