An emotionally truthful and visually stunning illustrated novel about solace, compassion and redemption.
Helene is not free to hide from the taunts she gets in the corridors at school. She can't be invisible in the playground or in the stairways leading to art class. Insults are even scribbled on the walls of the toilet cubicles: Helene smells, Helene's fat, Helene has no friends.
Helene's heart hammers in her chest but one day she dives into the pages of her book Jane Eyre and finds comfort there. Her own inner and outer worlds become brighter and perhaps, like Jane Eyre's story, Helene's story will end well after all?
