Louve wakes up one morning with the feeling that, this is it, it is time for her to grow up. She goes by herself to the woods and thinks. Who is she really, who does she want to become?
Her thoughts unwinds, she thinks about her family and her father, who is no longer there. At the foot of her favourite tree, she writes three letters in which she leaves everything that could weigh her down, that could prevent her from moving on…


Strong points:

-A poetic text which invites readers to introspection and to slow down and get to know themselves better.

-The color palette is very soft, the artist paid really attention to the details of the forest.

-The theme of writing is the heart of the book, its soothing qualities echo private diaries.


Key words: forest, childhood, nostalgia, introspection, nature
