Powerful and unfiltered, this fictional account of a teenage boy's addiction to online pornography is equal parts heartbreaking and hopeful.

The first time a link to a porn video pops up on his computer screen, Lucas is startled. He was simply trying to stream a superhero movie. Transfixed by the scene that unfolds, he experiences his first stirrings of arousal. Lucas soon

Although parts of the writing or translation from its original French are a bit clunky and sometimes I felt a bit queasy as I was reading the book due to its subject matter, this is certainly an important topic and one rarely, if ever, explored in books for teens or middle graders. The scary thing about online pornography is how ubiquitous it is and how easy it is for youngsters to access it, often from idle curiosity or stumbling upon it or clicking on a button that sends them to it. In the ...more
Waw… Cette histoire m’a bouleversé et retourner les tripes. Elle est pleine d’émotion et de dénonciation tellement poignante.

Patrick Bard à travers son écriture arrive à nous décrire la force de l’addiction quelle qu’elle soit. Il sait utiliser les mots justes pour décrire la puissance de la chose. J’aime beaucoup le fait qu’il aborde l’addiction au cybersexe qui est malheureusement peu connu ou plutôt peu reconnue. Les gens savent qu’il existe des addictions la drogue, jeu, sexe, mais pas au

C'est sur recommandation d'un auteur jeunesse que j'ai décidé de lire ce livre. J'avoue que le sujet, l'addiction d'un ado pour le cybersexe, me mettait plutôt mal à l'aise. Pourtant... ce sujet tabou est ici traité sans jugement, avec bienveillance et à travers ce sujet, est surtout abordé la dépendance à toute forme d'addiction. Il parle aussi du mal-être, des doutes, des idéaux qu'ont la jeunesse de nos jours. D'un point de vue de parents, le livre fait un peu peur ! Mais la réflexion est ...more

Excellent roman sur l'addiction. Le roman parle de comment elle s'installe, des sentiments de la personne mais aussi de son entourage et parle de tout le processus de guérison. L'addiction au porno en ligne est peu abordé, personnellement je connaissais très peu et j'ai trouvé ce roman très intéressant

POINT OF VIEW reads like a reference book, and kind of academic. Don't get me wrong--this book has very useful information everybody should know, but it doesn't quite read like a YA novel. Because ot this, I found it hard to sympathize with the main character and to get into the story.

Un grand merci aux éditions syros pour cette réception en avant première.
J'ai dévoré ce roman qui traite d'un sujet très peu commun ( à savoirdépendance à la pornographique et au cybersexe) et je lirai probablement les autres romans de l'auteur !

I don’t know what’s holding me exactly from giving it guy I’ve stars.Before going into it I’d admit I strongly judged it based on being written by a male and considered whether it would slightly veer form what it wanted to come across.But I was curious and eventual with every other sentence I now feel like the author was very biased in the way he described each of the characters by never really judging anyone but simply laying the facts straight up of what reality really is in this “modern era”. ...more

It was hard to go into this not expecting to judge: a teen addicted to pornography? Given my own life's experience with those addicted to alcohol, I assumed this would just be more of the same.

Yet there are fascinating nuances here, and seeing the statistics, in many ways the holy preventable descent down a man-made slope only serves to pour more into what is an intriguingly-told story.
