"A ninety-year-old woman with Alzheimer's and a heartbroken young man end up sharing a ride to Brussels that changes their lives forever. When Alex pulls up to meet 'Max', he expects everything but a ninety-year-old lady who has her heart set on getting to Brussels by carpool. As for 'Max', who is actually called Maxine, she could not be more ill at ease when settling into the seat next to this young man with bloodshot eyes. God help her if he turned out to be a drug addict who hasn't slept in days! When it becomes clear that Maxine is suffering from Alzheimer's and wants to take matters in her own hands while she still can, and that Alex battles severe depression, a wonderful friendship starts to form between the unlikely pair. Before long, their travel plans take an unexpected turn..."--Provided by publisher

Maxine (90) sucht eine Mitfahrgelegenheit nach Brüssel, um dort selbstbestimmt ihrem Leben ein Ende zu setzen. So lernt sie Alex (25) kennen, der sie in seinem Twingo mitnimmt. Der zu Depressionen neigende Student sucht nach einer Wende in seinem Leben. Allmählich lernt sich das ungleiche Duo besser kennen, kostet das Abenteuer der Reise genussvoll aus - das an Spannung gewinnt, nachdem das Verschwinden der alten Dame versehentlich für eine Entführung gehalten wird und die Polizei den beiden auf den Fersen ist ... - Die Figurenkonstellation des ersten auf Deutsch erscheinenden Romans der französischen Autorin ist nicht neu und erinnert sicher nicht zufällig an "Harold und Maude". Doch Zoe Brisby versteht es glänzend, die amüsante Geschichte des schüchternen Jungen und der resoluten Alten, die Redewendungen stets charmant verfälscht, mit einer gewissen Tiefe zu versehen und trotz einiger Klischees und oberflächlichen Lebensweisheiten überzeugend und mitreissend zu erzählen, sodass Maxine und Alex ihren Leser*innen schnell ans Herz wachsen. Der bisher wenig bekannte Sprecher Julian macht durch eine tadellose Lesung auf sich aufmerksam

A philosopher tramp, a grandma fan of vodka, a neurosurgeon cross his path for the best ... and for the worst! While his friend Marc does everything to prevent his hysterical boss from sending her away, the young woman realizes that in her obsession to succeed in her professional life, she may have let happiness slip through her fingers. A breakdown and a yellow vest can really make you think ..."--
