Faïza Guène, now 20, wrote this, her first novel, when she was 19. It was a huge success in France, selling over 100,000 copies and translation rights around the world. Faïza Guène lives in Paris where she is also making films.
Just like Tomorrowby Faiza Guene
Like the author, the main character in the story is an immigrant from North Africa. Fifteen-year-old Doria lives in the sadly misnamed Paradise Estate on the outskirts of Paris. She is funny, clever and tragically trapped. But in the end, her dogged determination not to be downtrodden and humiliated wins through and it looks like things can only get better.
