The Smell of Other People's Houses

This book is not about 'smelling', nor is it about 'other peoples houses' necessarily. However, I still really enjoyed it. The romance with the captivating story-line created a book that was really intriguing and mesmerising.
I really loved how it was written in four perspectives. It created wonderful amounts of drama because the author is clever as she gave us little bits of information but not so much that we knewexactly what is going to happen. This is also used well as at some points I did get a bit bored of a certain character, but I could always look forward to the next one. I also think that this book highlights teenage problems that some people overlook in the views of girls and boys.
The characters are all unique and although I had a favourite, whose parts I looked forward to (Alyce), I thought that all characters were very believable and had different backgrounds, which made them have different views and opinions.

Overall, I really liked tis book, not one of my favourites but still a great book. I hope you enjoy it too!! :)
