Product description


"A marvellous kaleidoscope" --The Guardian, Laura Wilson, January 7, 2011

`Guene is praised as a multicultural heroine. And to her credit, she turns stereotypes on their heads; the people of Making-Ends-Meet are an authentic community, whose humanity endears them to us, however gritty or kitsch their veneer --TLS

`She writes with intelligence and sympathy, with humour and with understanding'
--The Scotsman

`This is a vituosic work of literary ventriloquism, each voice brilliantly paced, heavily idiomatic and utterly distinctive' --The Independent

`The book is well drawn and very French, yet sounds so urgently British/London, it's charming and quick to read and allows an insight into the txt-ridden, low motivation, high octane lives of kids today, distractions, influences and warts, and all' --Booktrust

Book Description

The third novel from the young French Algerian star, whose first two novels - Just Like Tomorrow and Dreamz from the Endz have been published to great acclaim in many countries.
