Is there anything more handheld gaming than sitting in the back of a car, playing Pokémon during a road trip, leaving a backpack open by your feet and filled with distractions for the long drive, and bringing a pillow to nap on once you’ve out of entertainment options?
Pour bien terminer l’année (ou la débuter, à vous de voir), voici les toutes dernières Flavor Girls, plus précisément les “méchantes” (mais si, vous voyez bien qu’elles ont des petites ailettes de chauve-souris pour prouver qu’elles sont démoniaques).

A little status update on the book: the book is available in French, Italian, and, soon, Spanish! And you can read the New York Times review here.
