Feeling depressed, she is helped by one of her male friends, Valentin, to whom she confesses everything; Valentin tells her that he has already dated a boy, which Clémentine finds quite comforting.Shortly thereafter, Valentin takes Clémentine to some gay bars.

The novel tells a love story between two young women in France at the end of the 1990s.

Abdelatif Kechiche directed a film adaptation in 2013, titled Blue Is the Warmest Colour, which was awarded the Palme d'Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.

Clémentine's addiction results in a seizure and she ends up at the hospital, where Emma discovers that she is not allowed access to her at first.

Clémentine's parents and Emma eventually learn, tragically, that it is too late to save her; the damage from her addiction is too great.

Clémentine writes the final pages of her diary at the hospital, then dies. The comic has been supported by the French Community of Belgium. The film, as with the book, received overwhelming critical acclaim; it won several awards including the Palme d'Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.

As Emma reads the conclusion of the diary, she remembers that Clémentine urged her to continue living her life as she knows it. While the first two thirds of the film are similar (albeit with Clémentine renamed "Adèle"), the ending is different from the book, in which Adèle is still alive, and the two lovers split up due to what is strongly hinted to be irreconcilable differences between them.In the beginning, Clémentine meets a boy, Thomas, who is a student in Terminale; both like each other, but soon afterwards, Clémentine becomes intrigued by a chance meeting with a blue-haired young woman on the arm of another woman named Sabine Decocq. Unable to forget this encounter she starts to have doubts about her sexuality—but decides to date the boy because she wants to feel normal.Six months later, however, Clémentine is unable to have sex with that boy and breaks up with him.window.sbbop Loaded){ var sbbop_modal = create Modal(modal); if (sbbop_modal !P.when('A', 'j Query').execute(function (A, $) { /* redemption Result Status To Message Body : Messages handling the different results from the redeem code end point redemption Result Status To Message Type : Message type pointing to the type of the alert that is to be shown to the user */ var redemption Result Status To Message Body = ; var redemption Result Status To Message Type = ; /* click Promo Link This function consists of an ajax call that logs the promo link being clicked and a function call that determines and renders any eligible promotions.*/ var render Promo Details = function(should Show Popover) ; /* CLAIM CODE REDEMPTION Promotion/GC redemption click handler.
