Clémence’s life has always been same old, same old… until the coronavirus. Now, she can’t see Mamie, give her hugs, or buy candy at the Candy Shop. Mom stays home. The streets are empty, and even schools are closed, so she can’t play with her friends. Worst of all, she fights with her mother ALL. THE. TIME. But maybe with some encouragement from Mamie, Clémence can dig into her creativity to find the unexpected and make a difference.
