Ife, King Edward VI Camp Hill School for Girls

The Smell of Other People's Houses

I loved reading this, and think it a beautifully written book. I especially liked how the author told the narrative from the perspectives of four different teenagers each on their own paths, yet somehow their lives were intertwined and unravelled as the story developed.

When I first started reading it I found it a bit confusing, and wasn't too sure about the storyline, but as the book progressed I pieced together the puzzle, and I have to say I like the mystery, and how I had to engage in the book to work out the characters' stories, and how the bigger picture fitted together. I wish that Ruth's mother and grandma had been developed more as character's, and I wanted to know how they ended up at the nunnery, I also wanted to know more about Hank's family.

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes thought-provoking reads, and I was truly sad when it came to an end, but it was a great book.
