Toi contre moi : et si ton premier amour était aussi ton pire ennemi ? by Jenny Downham( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Un thriller psychologique captivant et bouleversant que l'auteure mène d'une main de maître en donnant à voir les deux côtés de la médaille: celui de la présumée victime et celui de l'accusé. La narration donne fort judicieusement à suivre en parallèle Mikey et Ellie, c'est-à-dire un jeune homme de 18 ans grandi trop vite qui s'efforce de remplacer son père à la tête d'une famille dysfonctionnelle tout en bossant fort pour réaliser son rêve de devenir cuisinier, et une adolescente fragile issue d'un milieu bourgeois qui prie pour l'innocence du grand frère qu'elle a toujours idolâtré. Le point de vue narratif adopté permet ainsi de prendre le pouls de la pression que subissent les proches de deux clans opposés dans un procès, ainsi que des rumeurs et des préjugés qui rejaillissent sur eux, notamment en milieu scolaire. Mais il permet également de faire durer le suspense jusqu'au dénouement final où la vérité est enfin révélée, après avoir amené le lecteur à partager les doutes des deux parties, à poser deux regards différents sur un même événement et en questionnant la limite qu'il convient ou non de franchir pour aider et soutenir notre famille. Les émois amoureux de Mikey et Ellie, véritables ##Roméo et Juliette## contemporains, apportent un souffle de fraîcheur à ce roman réaliste qui aborde une thématique délicate avec beaucoup de doigté, de sensibilité et de justesse.
