Author(s): Fanny Britt; Isabelle Arsenault
Helene is not free to hide from the taunts of her former friends in the corridors at school. She can't be invisible in the playground or in the stairways leading to art class. Insults are even scribbled on the walls of the toilet cubicles. When Helene's heart hammers in her chest as Genevieve snickers at the back of the bus, inventing nasty things to say about her, Helene dives into the pages of her book, 'Jane Eyre' by Charlotte Bronte. And, in the solace she finds there, Helene's own world becomes a little brighter. But how will the story end?
