Aurélie Laflamme is a 14-year-old girl—a bit shy, pretty funny and very clumsy—who feels like she's been left behind on Earth by some extraterrestrials after an intergalactic journey! Aurélie is still grieving the loss of her father. Her sense of humor and her determination helped her overcome this ordeal. But once you turn 14, a whole new range of explosive emotions inevitably show up to complicate your life. With humor and sensitivity Aurélie faces the hazards of teen life, such as friendship (and the sacrifices she must make to preserve it); academic success (loaded with obstacles, especially when you have the feeling they've transplanted squirrel synapses into your brain by mistake), the desire to see her mother find a boyfriend who's good for her and of course, love. The Diary of Aurélie Laflamme is the story of an ordinary teenager in search of her place in the universe.

VOLUME ONE
At fourteen, Aurélie Laflamme doesn't feel particularly close to anyone. Since her father
died, her mother has become some sort of a zombie, except all of a sudden, she's back to life (and even wearing edgy underwear!). Could there be a connection with Denis Beaulieu, the school principal? (OMG!) As for her best friend, Kat, love has rendered her brain uncharacteristicly mushy. No way that's happening to her, neither! But it seems no one is truly safe from love at first sight... And in the middle of all this chaos, there's only one thing Aurélie really wants: to find her place in the universe. See complete product information (French)

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.
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. See full author information (French)
