As their friendship grows, Lou cannot bear that No is still on the streets when she goes back home - even if it is to a home that is saddened and desolate. So she asks her parents if No can come to live with them. To her astonishment, her parents - eventually - agree. No's presence forces Lou and her parents to finally face the sadness that has enveloped them. But No has disruptive as well as positive effects. Can this shaky newfound family continue to live together? A tense, brilliant novel tackling the true meaning of home and homelessness.

Everyday Mathilde takes the Metro, then the commuter train to the office of a large multi-national where she works in the marketing department. Every day, the same routine, the same trains. But something happened a while ago - she dared to voice a different opinion from her moody boss, Jacques. Bit by bit she finds herself frozen out of everything, with no work to do. Thibault is a paramedic. Every day he drives to the addresses he receives from his controller. The city spares him no grief: traffic jams, elusive parking spaces, delivery trucks blocking his route. He is well aware that he may be the only human being many of the people he visits will see for the entire day and is well acquainted with the symptomatic illnesses, the major disasters, the hustle and bustle and, of course, the immense, pervading loneliness of the city. Before one day in May, Mathilde and Thibault had never met. They were just two anonymous figures in a crowd, pushed and shoved and pressured continuously by the loveless, urban world. Underground Time is a novel of quiet violence - the violence of office-bullying, the violence of the brutality of the city - in which our two characters move towards an inevitable meeting. 'Two solitary existences cross paths in this poignant chronicle, a new testimony to de Vigan's superb eloquence' Lire

Lou Bertignac a 13 ans, un QI de 160 et des questions plein la tête. Les yeux grand ouverts, elle observe les gens, collectionne les mots, se livre à des expériences domestiques et dévore les encyclopédies. Enfant unique d’une famille en déséquilibre, entre une mère brisée et un père champion de la bonne humeur feinte, dans l’obscurité d’un appartement dont les rideaux restent tirés, Lou invente des théories pour apprivoiser le monde. A la gare d’Austerlitz, elle rencontre No, une jeune fille SDF à peine plus âgée qu’elle. No, son visage fatigué, ses vêtements sales, son silence. No, privée d’amour, rebelle, sauvage. No dont l’errance et la solitude questionnent le monde. Des hommes et des femmes dorment dans la rue, font la queue pour un repas chaud, marchent pour ne pas mourir de froid. « Les choses sont ce qu’elles sont ». Voilà ce dont il faudrait se contenter pour expliquer la violence qui nous entoure. Ce qu’il faudrait admettre. Mais Lou voudrait que les choses soient autrement. Que la terre change de sens, que la réalité ressemble aux affiches du métro, que chacun trouve sa place. Alors elle décide de sauver No, de lui donner un toit, une famille, se lance dans une expérience de grande envergure menée contre le destin. Envers et contre tous. Roman d’apprentissage, No et moi est un rêve d’adolescence soumis à l’épreuve du réel. Un regard d’enfant précoce, naïf et lucide, posé sur la misère du monde. Un regard de petite fille grandie trop vite, sombre et fantaisiste.Un regard sur ce qui nous porte et ce qui nous manque, à jamais.

Retrouvez dans cette analyse approfondie de No et moi de Delphine de Vigan tout ce que vous devez savoir sur cette œuvre classique ! Lou est une jeune adolescente de 13 ans particulièrement intelligente. À l'occasion d'un exposé, elle s'intéresse à Nolwenn, une SDF de quelques années son aînée. Dès lors, Lou va tout faire pour aider la jeune fille à sortir de cette situation qu'elle juge injuste. Si l'arrivée de No dans la famille Bertignac semble à première vue bénéfique pour chacun, la rencontre de ces deux mondes si différents ne se fera pas sans heurts. Ainsi, malgré les idéaux de Lou, sauver celle qu'elle considère à présent comme son amie se révélera bien plus difficile que prévu. Que contient cette analyse d'oeuvre ? Après avoir détaillé la biographie de Delphine de Vigan, Tina Van Roeyen nous transporte directement au sein de l'histoire de No et moi, qu'elle résume fidèlement chapitre par chapitre. Elle se penche ensuite sur le contexte qui a vu naître ce roman, la France bouleversée par de nombreux problèmes sociaux (le chômage, la crise financière, l'immigration, etc.) et une littérature qui se veut à présent tournée vers l'humain. Les personnages du roman, autant les deux héroïnes que les personnages qui gravitent autour d'elles, sont alors soumis à une analyse rigoureuse. Vient ensuite l'étude des thématiques principales de l'oeuvre : le conflit générationnel, les SDF, un roman de la lutte et de l'apprentissage. L'analyse du style de Delphine de Vigan fait l'objet du chapitre suivant, tandis que l'étude de la réception de cette œuvre clôt l'analyse littéraire.

A New York Times Best Illustrated Book Hélène has been inexplicably ostracized by the girls who were once her friends. Her school life is full of whispers and lies - Hélène weighs 216; she smells like BO. Her loving mother is too tired to be any help. Fortunately, Hélène has one consolation, Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre. Hélène identifies strongly with Jane's tribulations, and when she is lost in the pages of this wonderful book, she is able to ignore her tormentors. But when Hélène is humiliated on a class trip in front of her entire grade, she needs more than a fictional character to see herself as a person deserving of laughter and friendship. Leaving the outcasts' tent one night, Hélène encounters a fox, a beautiful creature with whom she shares a moment of connection. But when Suzanne Lipsky frightens the fox away, insisting that it must be rabid, Hélène's despair becomes even more pronounced: now she believes that only a diseased and dangerous creature would ever voluntarily approach her. But then a new girl joins the outcasts' circle, Géraldine, who does not even appear to notice that she is in danger of becoming an outcast herself. And before long Hélène realizes that the less time she spends worrying about what the other girls say is wrong with her, the more able she is to believe that there is nothing wrong at all. This emotionally honest and visually stunning graphic novel reveals the casual brutality of which children are capable, but also assures readers that redemption can be found through connecting with another, whether the other is a friend, a fictional character or even, amazingly, a fox.
