Doria, quinze ans, jeune Française d'origine marocaine, vit seule avec sa mère dans une cité de la banlieue parisienne. Dans son journal, elle raconte son quotidien, celui de son quartier, et dresse le portrait à la fois tendre et caustique de ceux qui l'entourent : sa mère, femme de ménage dans un hôtel, Hamoudi, son ami d'enfance, la psychologue, Mme Burlaud, Nabil le nul, Aziz l'épicier ou encore sa fausse tante Zora.

Fifteen-year-old Doria lives in the sadly misnamed Paradise Estate on the outskirts of Paris. Her father has gone off back Morocco to find a wife who can give him a boy, and her illiterate, non French-speaking mother is having to fend for herself with a cleaning job in a grim motel.

Hamoudi - twenty-eight and the coolest guy on the estate - is her friend.

She gets a free weekly session with psychologist Mrs Burland, who is about the only person who listens. In this fabulous first novel, Faiza Guene has created an unforgettable voice. Doria is both clued up and innocent, acutely aware of what's in store for her and powerless to change it. She is funny, clever and tragically trapped.
