The book:
Between journal and collection of poems, Léa Jeunesse writes down her heartache and her doubts. She enthralls and accompanies the reader into the whirlwind of young love and heartbreak, this fallaciously ordinary yet so devastating experience which she addresses in her beautiful texts that resonate within all present and former adolescents who have ever known and suffered through love. 
The unusual format and the carefully crafted texture and design of the book are the perfect frame for these beautiful poems about a first love, which are embellished and intensified through the delicate and poetic illustrations by Maxime Lombard.
After the passion and the devastating experience of abandonment, loss and grief, a new day shines upon the soul, inaugurating a time for reconstruction into a new, stronger self: “you are strong, admirable, you are a star, so don’t forget to shine!”
 
Key points:
A revised and augmented version of Léa Jeunesse’s self published poetry collection The words have saved me (Les mots m’ont sauvée) that sold over 15,000 copies via Amazon and was the number one bestseller in the category poetry for several month.
A well structured opus that declines all aspects of the break-up experience in short poetic texts regrouped in several chapters: love, break-up, sadness, going back, moving forward, reconstruct oneself, a new love etc.
A fresh, intimate and natural approach to the big themes of love, loss and new beginnings in the spirit of  Rupi Kaur’s influential insta-poetry. 
A collection of short but powerful poems that will resonate within adolescents and adults as well accompanied by beautiful and delicate illustrations by the gifted young illustrator Maxime Lombard.
A book of poetry and an objet d’art in itself: in addition to the unusual, smaller format (13,5 x20 cm), the lacquered jacket and its thick deckled edge paper make this book a little treasure to hold, to cherish and to gift.
