Two thirteen year old boys are getting drunk on an almost daily basis and only one parent notices But she is not alone in her observations Their teacher Hélène senses an alteration in one the duo's character Theo is still a teen and yet appears sleep deprived and world weary leading to the only obvious conclusion Hélène's mind can conjure Whether it is correct remains to be seen but she will do whatever is in her power to save this boy from the downward spiral he seems intent on flinging himself towardsI appreciated the variety of perspectives that were used to tell this tale The reader becomes privy to the mysteries plaguing each character early on and it allows this to be read like less of a thriller and of a chilling character study The events continue to unfold in no less of a dramatic fashion however only now heartbreak mingles within the dramaThis brought to mind another recent favourite of mine Leila Slimani's Lullaby Both deftly create a bleak story line that is mirrored by the scarcity of the words used to tell it and still allows for the reader to become haunted by the unfurling of events for far longer than it takes to read itI received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review Thank you to the author Delphine de Vigan and the publisher Bloomsbury for this opportunity

Thanks to NetGalley and Little Brown and Company for an egalley in exchange for an honest review Originally published in France in 2018 and soon to be available on the North American market Delphine de Vigan gives us two adults and two children that are trapped in their knowledge of devastating secrets For the schoolteacher Helene she knows that something is not right with her students Theo and precariously oversteps her own professional boundaries For Theo he knows that his parents use him as a pawn and he does not want to expose any truths in their war Mathis joins his friend in drinking antics but might be overlooking his own wellbeing Finally Cecile Mathis's mother discovers that her husband is leading a double life on the internet This was a fairly bleak book and as I closed its final pages I am still experiencing a very mixed reaction three days after finishing it That's okay After all some books are meant to twist us in knots Certainly all four characters are bound by their need to maintain secrecy because they believe it will stop others from suffering I was left with a lot of unanswered uestions and boy did that ending leave me feeling angsty Goodreads review 080620Expected publication date 210720

Les LoyautésG on her husband's computer that makes her uestion whether she has ever truly known himRespectable facades are peeled away as the four stories wind tighter and tighter together pulling into a lean and darkly gripping novel of loneliness lies and loyaltie. Loyalties or Les Loyautés in French is award winning author Delphine de Vigan's latest novel to be translated from English It started off promisingly enough but soon became a strain to read as everything was a little disjointed and the constant need to try to keep engaged with the novel left me cold and somewhat irked Important modern issues are treated very lightly and effectively glossed over; I was rather shocked by this given the author's usual treatment of controversial topics Moral content is top of the list for why I enjoy DdV's work so much but here I felt there were far too many cliched statements made and that resulted in me losing whatever interest I had left And the conclusion also leaves a lot to be desired; this is far from her best workMany thanks to Bloomsbury Publishing for an ARC
