De quoi s'agit-il?

I see this short novel as a perfect foil to La haine a film studied by huge numbers of UK schools. Written by the 19 year old Faïza Guène, daughter of north African immigrants, the account of a year in one girl's life is presented in approachable chapters rich in detail about what it feels like to belong to a less-favoured group in society.

Rather than being big on plot, the book is more of a mood board with the colour moving from a cool blue to a warm yellow as the narrative comes to a conclusion. The sarcastic, cynical Doria of the first three quarters of the book references popular culture as her source of metaphor and simile and savages the education system as well as those who seek to help her and her mother. Her language is rich in verlan and is close to general spoken contemporary French with not a hint of the past historic.

As Doria's pain diminishes we see her becoming grudgingly accepting of what society is doing for her, coaxed along by some romantic interest. All in all a good text to study to help students empathise with modern urban society in France.
