Voilà... euh... mon premier roman vient de paraître : / This is my first published novel:

La Couverture3 by word-s-myth

4e de couverture : Nouvelle au lycée Camille-Claudel, Léa, quinze ans, se sent un peu perdue. Mais pour le cours d'art visuel, des groupes se constituent. Chacun doit réaliser un court-métrage avec son téléphone portable. Léa, la sauvage au grand coeur, se retrouve ainsi avec les parias de la classe : Moussa, le Black zen protecteur qui lui a parlé en premier, Quentin, un grand maigre aux allures de vampire, Pauline, une fille un peu "space", et Jennifer, la bombe qui se croit mieux que tout le monde et hypnotise tous les mecs, à commencer par Quentin... À sa façon, Léa, avec sa franchise, sa soif de justice et son envie d'aider les autres, va bouleverser la vie de chacun et trouver enfin celui à qui elle pourra confier son secret.
(Dis-moi qu'il y a un ouragan, Gallimard Jeunesse, 264 pages.)


The title means: "Tell me there's a hurricane" or "Tell me a hurricane is coming"
February 2012. Léa, 15, is new to her school. Don't ask her why her family suddenly had to move to a new town: she's too scared to share this secret. All she wants is to start a new life.
The "visual art" teacher gives an assignment to her class: writing and shooting a short film, using a mobile phone as a camera. Teams are made. That's how Léa joins the freaks of the class: Moussa, a meditative black boy, far from any teenage angst; Quentin, aka "the Vampire", who isolates in his own dark strangeness; and Pauline, aka "Space Girl", a shy and obsessive girl. But the teacher makes a fifth member join the team: Jennifer, the scornful and beautiful "queen bee", who mesmerises everyone, especially Quentin. She is the exact opposite of boyish (though romantic), friendly (though tactless) and fairness-loving Léa.
In a light-hearted, sensitive and biting tone, Léa tells the story of her ill-assorted team: how she changes their lives and how they change hers, how secrets and delusions can hurt or unite, how art and poetry can heal and reveal... And how love is actually a tricky thing.

France
Usually working with words (in French, rarely in Latin or English), for my job and for my pleasure, I'm sometimes taken by an urge to draw or take a picture.
I wish I could catch Truth or Beauty, but I'm afraid they run faster than me :-)

N.B.: If you fave/comment one of my deviations, you can be sure that I'll have a look at your gallery. If I like/fave a deviation, I (often) try to explain why or tell what it evokes in me. I invite you to do the same, if you feel like it ;-)

---------------
Lecteur-correcteur, parfois traducteur, et vaguement écrivain, il m'arrive parfois d'avoir envie de dessiner ou de saisir un instant, un sentiment, en photo. Le résultat est ici.

N.B. : Si vous sélectionnez/commentez une de mes deviations, j'irai sûrement visiter votre galerie. Si j'aime/sélectionne une deviation, j'essaie (souvent) d'expliquer pourquoi ou de dire ce qu'elle m'évoque. Merci de faire de même, si le cœur vous en dit :-)
