Content descriptions

General Note:
Original title: Les enfants sont rois.
Summary, etc.:
"A cautionary tale, a gripping cleverly told story of intrigue and deception, a heartfelt denunciation of contemporary online culture, Delphine de Vigan's new novel is all these things and more. The first time Mélanie met Clara, she was stunned by Clara's sense of authority. For her part, Clara was struck by Mélanie's pink, glittery nails. "She looks like a child," thought the first. "She looks like a doll," pondered the second. Two women who could not be more different. Mélanie is a social media superstar who broadcasts every detail of her kids' lives on a family YouTube channel. Clare is a young police officer, assigned to the case after Mélanie's daughter Kimmy is abducted. Traversing the Big Brother generation, the social media influencer generation, and into the 2030s, Delphine de Vigan offers a chilling exposé of a world where every aspect of lived experience and every emotion is broadcast, from moments of family happiness to the deepest and most solitary despair." -Dust jacket flap
