The Smell of Other People's Houses

Ruth, Alyce, Hank and Dora are four teenagers with messed up lives. Lives they want to runaway from.

Many people said that the structure of this book was annoying, I personally loved it as it showed us the story from every one of their perspectives.

Personally, my favourite character was Alyce because even being rich and beautiful and everyone thought of her as a perfect girl, she actually wasn't all that perfect. At the start I thought she was a proud, annoying girl but after reading her own POV I realised she was suffering more than everyone thought, she was actually a fighter.

I also loved Hank, as throughout the book he never gave up and kept supporting his younger brothers and of course Ruth as well.

I loved this book so much. Out of the four I have read this is personally my favourite and it truly deserves to win.

I would recommend this to everyone. Please read this book.
