Dirty Little Secrets by C.J. Omololu
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Lucy's life is a nightmare and it has gotten out of control. Her mother has been a hoarder for years and the reader finds that her mother has been this way since her husband left her. She is mean to Lucy and her brother Phil couldn't wait to get to college. Now Lucy looks forward to this time in 2 years but there are no walkways in the house anymore. Lucy can't have her best friend Kaylie over and what would Josh think if he found out her secret? Would both Kaylie and Josh abandon her, once they found out. The trauma of living with this filth, anger at her mother, and not being able to have a life are excruciatingly detailed page after page. I couldn't put this book down, oh how my heart goes out to families that suffer with this hoarding nightmare. Such a sad, but hopeful book. Highly recommended.
