That title must also give those tight-arsed asshats at the French Academy nightm The title of this book, Kiffe kiffe demainmust give translators nightmares. Doria, the heroine, is as critical of her fellow residents with their sexism and narrow-mindedness as she is of French racism.

He’s one of those people who think illiteracy is like AIDS. Consiglio vivamente di leggere questo libro anche solo per capire meglio la situazione in cui si trovano molti giovani che vivono nelle banlieue, soprattutto in quelle parigine, che alla fine sono quasi periferie come tante altre.

It’s also an example of a popular trope of the 90s and 00s, the nerd gets the girl. Written in the no nonsense a bit rash style of a teenager the book grabs you from beginning to end.


Not technically published as YA, apparently, but I will be assigning it to dr class for its hella resonance. I don’t remember thinking this about more than one or two people and it’s not like I was having a great time socially or at homeand I can’t ever remember other kids saying it.

No wonder the French went gaga over this new Sagan, this new Salinger. Another copy I picked up at the office I wanna thank an old friend whose favorite book was the French version of this exquisite novel.

The story is clunky in places, and there were some unanswered questions, but the voice here is powerful, cheeky, and badass. Doria the teenaged narrator is witty; sarcastic; cyncical, yet a dreamer; funny, in a primarily ironic way; insightful; tender; irreverent; and swears brilliantly.


When her father leaves them and heads back to Morocco to find a woman who can give him a son, Doria and her mother must find a way to survive. I do know that while the novel has no beginning, middle and end, there is no main narrative, it does give you a slice of the pie and ask that you taste it and make up your own mind about how much you like it. I guess there even could be some Russian girls who have never laced up a pair of skates in their life.

I loved her and I believed in her completely. She femain a black demaih of humour, a strong moral compass, and wonderful powers of observation.

The voice of the young girl is sometimes angry but it is an anger that is directed to the injustices that are commited around her, and to the people who treat her like an outsider and an unimportant entity, so the anger is very justifiable Je sais pas que je veux dire.

Les assistantes sociales de la mairie qui defilent chez elle parfaitement manucurees. And we see her at guenne end of the book change that attitude towards acceptance and love which is very refreshing. I read it in English, I’m sure the french version is even better. She just gets on with things. I honestly don’t know what to think about this book.
