The Smell of Other People's Houses

I am currently three chapters into this book, I'm really enjoying it. I like the way that the book moves from character to character and they all will eventually meet. I think that the book is also really easy to read and well written. I've only met two of the characters; Ruth and Dora. They both live in Birch park and Ruth is quite poor but going out with a rich boy who lives in a different town. Ruth lives with her Granny who is very strict and her best friend also lives out of Birch Park and is really innocent. Dora also lives in Birch Park and isn’t that poor but not rich. She has many encounters with this crazy guy who no matter what is always dancing on the side on a corner that she goes past on the way to her school and the guy always asked her what didn’t you fail at today and it leaves her thinking about it throughout the day. Alyce lives in the town and she loves dancing but her parents are split so in the summer she goes fishing with her dad and she’s really good at it but she doesn’t want to say to her dad that she doesn’t like it.
