Aurélie Laflamme’s Diary

Join India Desjardins, author of the bestselling series Aurélie Laflamme’s Diary and actress Marianne Verville, who plays Aurélie Laflamme in the eponyme movie for a conversation on this irresistible series.

Aurélie Laflamme feels all alone in the universe. When you’re fourteen, studying in an all-girl’s school, and have just gotten into a fight with your best – and only – friend, it’s just about the end of the world. On top of all of this, if you have a mother obsessed with cleaning, who never understands anything and has a serious crush on your school’s headmaster, well then…
If only dad were here… He would get it. But dad died five year ago. Pulmonary embolism, it was fast, sudden. Mom never accepted his passing. She never could answer her daughter’s questions. “Where is daddy now?” In paradise, reincarnated, in nothingness… What is there after we die? Aurélie is haunted by this existential question.
Between joy and sorrow, successes and failures, love and friendship, Aurélie will have to find her own place in this universe.
