Bon Anniversaire: Le match (French), by A.C. Quintero
Étienne just can't get a break, even on his birthday! From the forgetful teacher in class to the bully that takes his lunch, he is at his wit's end. Although his day starts to brighten when his best friend and his love interest wish him "happy birthday," he is still subject to Robert's (the bully) attacks. However, a soccer match may set the record straight. Étienne has an uphill battle and must muster the courage to stand up for himself, even on his birthday. Will this be a breakthrough moment for Étienne, or will his fear hold him back?
