The Smell of Other People's Houses

I really liked the way the author went into such exquisite detail and really explained the characters personalities using language. I liked the way that such different characters all come together, also the way that the start links to the end, it starts with Ruth and ends with Ruth. Ruth is a teenager who's parents have died. Dora wishes she had different parents(she and Ruth do not get along). Alyce is forced to go to fish camps but all she really wants to do is dance. Hank is running away from home with his 2 younger brothers, Sam and Jack. Something dreadful happens to all 4 teenagers ranging from getting pregnant, to falling in a pool of orcas. This book is definetly worth reading, it is one of the better ones on this list.
