The Smell of Other People's Houses

This book is about the lives of four teenagers, set in Alaska.
I found the title very queer, and after reading the blurb decided it definitely wasn't a book I would normally pick up.
I generally really like books written from multiple viewpoints, however, here I think they were too loosely connected, the characters barely interacted and if they did it was for a short period of time. The viewpoints were more separate short stories , than one large storyline, it was quite easy to loose track of the characters and get lost between the stories.
I found this book boring most of the time. 2.5 stars out of 5.
