Abstract
L'adolescence et la puberté sont des caps qui peuvent se révéler difficiles, voire très douloureux à aborder. L'auteure, Pauline Aubry, après une période de rébellion pure et dure, a elle-même été victime de crises d'angoisse aiguës nécessitant l'hospitalisation. Aujourd'hui, elle va mieux et a décidé de « replonger » dans cette période critique en organisant un stage BD à l'attention de jeunes recevant des soins de longue durée dans un département de pédopsychiatrie. Elle en a tiré Les Mutants, un peuple d'incompris, un documentaire qui fut pré-publié dans l'excellente revue XXI.
L'album suit les cas d'Annabelle, Adrien, Pierre, Alice, Mathieu et quelques autres. Tous ont en commun un énorme mal de vivre et n'arrivent pas à trouver leur place : plus enfants, ils ne sont pas encore tout à fait des adultes. Ce spleen traditionnel est partagé, à un niveau ou un autre, par tout un chacun, mais dans ces cas présents, s'avère insupportable et nécessite un suivi personnalisé. Aubry illustre avec application et précision ces diagnostics. Elle présente également, avec ce qu'il faut d'autodérision, sa propre expérience et introduit les grands courants théoriques à ce sujet. L'ensemble est agréable à parcourir, car le ton général reste très léger et même drôle (l'univers médical est rempli d'anecdotes d'un humour noir aux vertus souvent cathartiques), malgré la gravité de son propos.

Abstract
Appréhender et tempérer les troubles de l'adolescence. Tous les ados ne se ressemblent pas. Certains vivent cette période repliés dans leur chambre, d'autres ne cessent de sortir. Certains perdent tout intérêt pour les études, d'autres sont toujours premiers, certains ont le joint aux lèvres dès le lever, d'autres n'y toucheraient pour rien au monde et d'autres encore oscillent entre les deux extrêmes. Il reste que certains traits se dégagent et que tous vivent une période complexe. Crise ? Oui, en quelque sorte. L'adolescent traverse une crise, une transformation. L'adolescence inquiète parce que les risques sont effectivement là. Et pour traverser cette étape, Les ados ont besoin de leurs parents. A leurs côtés et non en face d'eux. Conçu comme les précédents - par tranche d'âge -, ce livre explore la psychologie des adolescents, ainsi que certaines composantes biologiques et physiologiques, et aide ainsi à poser un regard nouveau sur les motivations de leurs comportements.
