No Fixed Address (French) / Partis sans laisser d’adresse

Middle Reader

Félix Knutsson, douze ans trois quarts, vit avec sa mère, Astrid, et sa gerbille, Horatio. Tous trois habitent dans un Combi Volkswagen "emprunté ". Astrid assure que la situation va s'arranger dès qu'elle aura trouvé du travail, et fait promettre à Félix de garder le secret. L'adolescent tient sa langue et parvient à faire sa rentrée dans un nouveau collège, comme si de rien n'était. Mais à mesure que l'hiver approche, les temps se font de plus en plus durs.
Félix en est sûr : la meilleure manière de s'en sortir est de participer à son émission de télévision favorite, Qui, Que, Quoi, Quand ? S'il gagne, il remportera vingt-cinq mille dollars, et alors Astrid et lui n'auront plus aucun souci à se faire!


Twelve-and-three-quarter-year-old Felix Knutsson has a knack for trivia. His favorite game show is Who What Where When; he even named his gerbil after the host. Felix’s mom, Astrid, is loving but can’t seem to hold on to a job. So when they get evicted from their latest shabby apartment, they have to move into a van. Astrid swears him to secrecy; he can’t tell anyone about their living arrangement, not even Dylan and Winnie, his best friends at his new school. If he does, she warns him, he’ll be taken away from her and put in foster care.

As their circumstances go from bad to worse, Felix gets a chance to audition for a junior edition of Who What Where When, and he’s determined to earn a spot on the show. Winning the cash prize could make everything okay again. But things don’t turn out the way he expects. . . .

Susin Nielsen deftly combines humor, heartbreak, and hope in this moving story about people who slip through the cracks in society, and about the power of friendship and community to make all the difference.
