All day, it was the same scenario: I went and sat in the front row without looking at the boys. From one lesson to the next, the murmurs died down. The class got used to the new situation quicker than I did. Maybe it was just because Sofiane wanted to go out with me that the other two accepted me for so long. What if I'd let him? What would have happened?

Laura 16, or the journey of a young girl determined not to let herself be broken and to find her own truth.

The characters from OUBLIER CAMILLE and MON ÂME FRÈRE return in this novel, whose heroine, Laura, weaves the link between the stories.

PRESS REVIEWS (extracts)

Just one book to recommend on bullying? "My reputation", by Gaël Aymon! FRANCE INTER
Few authors manage to penetrate the world of adolescence without breaking their teeth. Gaël Aymon does it brilliantly. It's a heartfelt tale that reads in one sitting and asks the right questions. ELLE
A powerful, intense book that describes an unbearable situation with astonishing realism in 90 pages. LES CAHIERS PÉDAGOGIQUES
A magnificent novel that brought tears to my eyes on the RER! A must for all secondary school libraries! BLOG-O-NOISETTES
A real favourite! The fears and feelings described to perfection! FNAC Colmar
The teenagers in this story are so true, and so are the adults. There's no Manicheanism or two-bit morality. Everything is intertwined and interwoven right up to the end, which is lovely and full of hope in spite of everything. LA FÉE LIT
A real favourite! A short novel that deals very accurately with bullying, feelings and social networks FNAC Metz
A book that moved me and made me think! FURET DU NORD Villeneuve d'Ascq
A very good, sensitive novel about bullying. Emotional without pathos. FURET DU NORD Coquelles
Recommended by LES
