Where to buy it


The kids of the St-Jean-Baptiste district of Quebec City are going to lose their clubhouse--the only place where they can meet their friends, talk, and play music without adults around all the time.

But they've worked so hard on it, putting up walls, hammering, cleaning, that they won't give it up without a fight. So Genevieve, her friend Gadou and the other club members try to figure out a plan to save the clubhouse. Soon their efforts involve the whole neighbourhood, the police and even the mayor of Quebec! Whatever the outcome, the kids will never be the same when the fight is finally over.

Set in the neighbourhoods of beautiful Quebec City, Salut, Gadou! is the lively story of a group of young people who come together to fight for a common cause.
