The Smell of Other People's Houses

The Smell of Other People's Houses is an emotional story about change. It is written from the perspectives of four very different teenagers. You follow their stories as their lives change- for worse or better- and entwine. Dora, Alyce, Ruth and Hank. "Ruth wants to be remembered by her grieving mother. Dora wishes she was invisible to her abusive father. Alyce is staying at home to please her parents. Hank is running away for the sake of his brothers." We would recommend it to people who like realistic stories and family dramas. It is a gripping story that you can't put down.
