Description

A&iuml:cha lives with her mother in Montreal's Centre-Sud neighbourhood. She's only thirteen but claims to be older. She has never known her father, and resents her mother for leaving Hakim, her stepfather. Her only friends are Mel and Jo, two local prostitutes, and Baz, a musician in his twenties, who comes to her rescue one day and with whom she proceeds to fall in love. Her impossible love for Baz, her precociousness and her rebellious streak come together into an explosive cocktail. Raw and heartrending, Worst Case, We Get Married is the statement A&iuml:cha gives to a social worker.

From acclaimed Québécois writer Sophie Bievenu, and translated by JC Sutcliffe, comes Worst Case, We Get Married, a powerful and moving coming-of-age novel. Originally published in French in 2011 as Et au pire, on se mariera, the novel was adapted into a film by Bienvenu and Léa Pool in 2017.

Editorial Review

"Sophie Bienvenu has given us a real tour de force: the subject matter is deep and heavy, but the book itself is a page turner. Her writing is fluid and captures the adolescent voice with painful accuracy." --mamereetaithipster

"A moving and poignant story in which truth gets tangled up with one teenager's overflowing imagination." &mdashLes libraries
