The majestic Mont-Saint-Michel, which attracts millions of curious people every year, stands almost as an international emblem for this beautiful and vast region. But Normandy is diverse, rich in its landscapes, culture and activities: tumultuous at Cap de la Hague, serene where the Seine meanders, steeped in history at Rouen, chic at Deauville, thermal at Bagnoles-de-l'Orne, original at Le Havre, resort-like at Granville. And of course there's the history: from William the Conqueror to the Allied landing during World War II. Though the price to pay was high, it is a real source of pride for the Normans to have played such a huge role in the liberation of Western Europe. The commemoration of these events holds a special place in the whole region. In short, if you don't have a precise agenda, let yourself drift along its paths and roads: this is perhaps the best way to discover Normandy and its way of life. Lovers of sport (nautical sport, of course, but not only), good meals, architectural discoveries, or just tranquility, Normandy is for you. With this guidebook, Petit Futé has done everything possible to give you a selection of addresses gathering the must-sees as well as the hidden treasures for a successful stay.

: “I could hear the crackling of the blazing fires and even feel the smoke swirl around my body. The faint odor of blood filled my nostrils until I was overwhelmed by the stench of death.” Moving to a small town and beginning her senior year at a new school proved to be much more than a typical high school nightmare of being the new kid on campus; for Addy, it was a tug-of-war for her soul. Enticed by a mysterious and powerful group of peers, she uncovers unexpected secrets hidden away in the coastal town of Ledo and must face the most important decision of her life, but it may cost her just that…her life.
