Dreams from the Endz

by Faiza Guene
£7.99   paperback  Vintage (2009)

Dreams from the Endz by Faiza Guene Dreams from the Endz is the story of twenty-four Ahlème, who is spirited, sassy and wise but has more problems than she knows how to deal with.
 
Her father, The Boss, is permanently disabled after an accident on a building site, her sixteen-year-old brother, Foued, has been permanently excluded from school and seems intent on joining the drug-dealers who share their estate, while she is left to deal with the guilt trips from their family back in Algeria.
 
But when she returns home – after a ten-year absence – she brokers a kind of truce, both with her homeland and the need to forge a future.

"Alheme has a wit, wisdom and charisma that puts the reader firmly on her side as she does her best to find the small scraps of hope she needs to keep her going in tough situations ... Alheme's story gives a voice to people who are more frequently merely voiceless statistics"
