She lives outside the village, in the woods, near the river, with her sister. Or her mother. She doesn't really know. Her life is simple, but nothing ever stays the same. Her body is changing; life around her is changing, too. And there aren't many people around who can explain to her what's happening. A story with a sombre offbeat mood, guided along by a narrator using unique and colourful language.

"Her unique voice, deconstructed phrasing and metaphors as gentle as caresses have taken Stéphanie Boulay's imagination by storm." - Le Huffington Post Québec
"Stéphanie Boulay has found a style that suits her, striking the right tone, candid, coloured, clear and very close to the emotions." - Le Journal de Québec
"Her language, which ranges from imaginative to absurd, is wholly unique, and that's what makes the book such an enjoyable read." - Québec Reads
"Readers might see the concept captured in the title - of two strands of a river coming together, their waters commingling - as a manifestation of puberty itself, that wretched amalgam that is neither childhood nor adulthood." - Quill & Quire
