Harriet sait que le mannequinat ne peut pas la transformer. Elle sait qu’être singulièrement différente comme un ours polaire n’est pas nécessairement une mauvaise chose (même dans la forêt tropicale). Et aussi qu’un humain moyen consomme une tonne de nourriture par année, même si sa belle-mère enceinte semble faire tout en son pouvoir pour faire augmenter la moyenne. Ce qu’Harriet ignore, c’est où sera sa place à l’arrivée du bébé. Ses projets d’été sont tombés à l’eau, alors aller parader au Japon semble être le plan parfait pour s’éloigner le plus possible de la maison. Toutefois, rien ne pouvait préparer Harriet à la folie de Tokyo, à l’esprit compétitifs des autres mannequins et au «chaperonnage» de sa grand-mère. Ou encore à retrouver le superbe Nick partout où elle va. Parce que cette fois-ci, Harriet connaît la sensation d’un coeur brisé. L’intellectuelle pourra-t-elle trouver sa voie de l’autre côté du monde, ou Harriet estelle perdue à jamais?

Dr. Jeronimus Quint has an unusual business model that Hippocrates would frown upon: he creates his own patients by injuring people whose lives then depend on him. His latest victims are Jonas Crow, Undertaker, and Rose, his English companion. Without the best medical attention—i.e. Quint's—each might lose a limb, or even die, from gangrene. He's kidnapped Rose and is withholding his sado-surgical skills while Jonas and his cohort Lin pursue him and his captive. With ferrymen and lumberjacks in front, angry lawmen behind, and a leg killing him from within, the Undertaker hopes to survive long enough to make Jeronimus Quint his next customer.
Claire Martin's autobiography was first published in two volumes in 1965 and 1966. Already a prize winning Quebec writer, the author generated a wave of controversy with this detailed account of a childhood subjected to cruelty and brutality. Her deeply moving portrayal drew acclaim from readers who saw aspects of their own childhood experiences mirrored in its pages; it also evoked resistance from traditionalists unsettled by its exposé of family, church, and convent school some decades before the Quiet Revolution. Written with the passion of one who has known harsh injustices, this memoir nevertheless reflects the steady focus and narrative skill of an seasoned writer. With a richly descriptive style and deft ironic touch, Claire Martin tells her own unforgettable story of a young person confronting and finally emerging from the oppressions of unrestrained malign authority.

He pushes her away again and again, yet every time she pushes back, he only pulls her in deeper. Tessa already has the perfect boyfriend. So why is she trying so hard to overcome her own hurt pride and Hardin's prejudice about nice girls like her? Unless...could this be love?
