The Smell of Other People's Houses

My thoughts on this unique/interesting book by Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock is very distinctive because it's not just like any other book. This book really stands out, but in an unusual way."The Smell Of Other People's Houses" tells the interconnected stories of four teenagers – Ruth, Dora, Alyce, and Hank - who pass the baton of the story between them as they grow older and eventually end up connecting with each other. Hitchcock divides the novel into four sections following the order of the year - spring, summer, autumn, and winter. The novel has a loose structure, allowing individual stories to emerge and collide. Overall this book was quite interesting to read, as I already said that it's not like any other ordinary book, it's a book of passion and uniqueness.
