Le Baby-sitter
Jean-Philippe Blondel

Alex is broke. As a student, it’s hard to make ends meet… Until one day he has a great idea: babysitting! It must be possible to both male and a babysitter, right? It looks like it. Alex is even pretty successful. Maybe people find his 6’4” reassuring. Isn’t reassurance what parents are looking for in the person they entrust their children to? Unless the parents are the ones that really need attention, “babysitting” and more? Alex gradually turns into a confident, friend, lover and mentor. He learns to see deep inside the adults, who are all hiding wounds: isn’t life itself an endless drama that still needs to be taken with a sense of humor?

The Babysitter is an exceptionally sensitive and up-beat novel. Readers will feel close to the characters and situations, which are firmly rooted in the real and the every-day. The interwoven, captivating stories are theirs, too. Over the course of greater and lesser dramas, Alex contributes to revealing the secrets of those around him. Right up to the last, very poetical scene, in which a dream comes true.
