Today is a special day for Aurélien.
Not only he is going to have a party for his 17th birthday, but he has a pretty peculiar declaration
to make during the dinner - and he is afraid by
what the reaction of his mothers might be.
The day and the evening are told by six characters: Aurélien, Juliette (his natural mother), Bénédicte (his
“other” mother”), Teddy (his uncle and Bénédicte’s brother), Cindy (Teddy’s partner, who nobody ever
met before), and Milfred, the family’s cat. Everyone will share with us his or her point of view and opinion
on the day’s happenings, especially on this important “Birthday declaration”.
This novel explores in a humorous way what intolerance is. In fact, nobody can find shelter from prejudices. Not even the cat.
Déclaration d’anniversaire is an unconventional novel full of suspense, where one can never trust appearances. Discovering Aurélien’s family is entering a quirky world which is just as unusual as it is steadily linked to present society. The reader will definitely recognize him or herself in one of the characters
