Description

Set on the rugged north shore of the Gulf of St Lawrence, The Iguana tells the realistic, yet fabulous, story of an extraordinary friendship between two young boys who appear to have nothing in common except a tragic loneliness. Recently, the narrator's safe world was shattered by a snowmobile accident involving his parents, and he was taken in by his grandparents in the village of Ferland. Slowly, he befriends his classmate Luc Bezeau, a misfit who takes refuge from a brutal home environment in a magical undersea realm inhabited by fantastic beings. Together, the boys construct new reasons for living, which launch them on a wild, adventurous search.
