    Léonie has reached the age when she must face the Big Wide. Every teenager in her world must embark on this coming-of-age ritual of taking to the open ocean in whatever kind of vessel they can afford and finding their way back to dry land. After the first big storm, Léonie meets Balthazar, a mute boy, and Agathe, a woman who has spent 40 years in the Big Wide. The three band together to brave waves, looters, sharks and starvation. When they come across an old colleague of Agathe’s, Léonie and Balthazar will learn that there are things far more dangerous than the open sea. A coming-of-age adventure story and a reflection on the resilience of the human spirit, The Big Wide is as poetic as it is entertaining.
