My name is Henri Bastien, and I'm 14 years old. Three-quarters of my Facebook friends are part of my family and I spend most of my free time playing Just Dance on my own or watching Glee when nobody's looking. At high school, it's like I don't exist, and Noémie, the girl I'm following on Instagram, is way to cool for me. But all that's going to change. I'm about to reveal my true talent. With a little help from my frien Tam, I'm going to be a Youtuber. Soon I'll be one of the most popular guys out there, I just know it. And Noémie will finaly see that I exist!


Olivier Simard, author

Olivier Simard has a bachelor’s degree in literature and has been teaching high-school French for several years. In 2012, he published a novel for young adults, Kickflip, with La courte échelle. Olivier is a big fan of free taster classes. Over the years, he has tried his hand at kung fu, boxing, acroyoga, mime, modern dance, and even playing the drums and the clarinet.


  • The rhythm and graphic design in this book make you think of the GIFs we see all over social media. It’s just long enough to weave a story that doesn’t cut things short or stretch them out, either. This is a novel that will appeal to many teenagers, even those who don’t think they enjoy reading (because they’d rather be watching YouTube videos). - Sophielit
