The 13th Avenue

François Vigneault & Geneviève Pettersen

Alexis’ life isn’t the same since his dad passed away. He moves with his mom to a new city, Montréal, on the 13th street, to start a new life. His mom cries a lot, and it’s hard for Alexis to make friends as a new kid in the neighborhood. One day, he meets Ernest, who is just a few years older than him and lives in the same apartment building. Ernest seems to always be alone, and when Alexis starts asking questions about his parents or school, Ernest becomes even more of a puzzle. Why doesn’t anyone else but Alexis seem to know Ernest, while Ernest knows everything about everybody else?

The 13th Avenue is the first part of a trilogy for teenagers about loss in the family, moving to another city, the first love and a mysterious new friend.
