The Smell of Other People's Houses

Dora. Dora hides to avoid her abusive father. Until she wins an enormous amount of money.

Ruth. Ruth lives with her grandmother and her younger sister. Until she gets pregnant.

Alyce. Alyce is trapped between her desire to please her parents and her dream of becoming a dancer. Until she rescues a drowning boy.

Hank. Hank runs away from home with his brothers. Until one of them disappears.

4 different lives. 4 different pasts. With one thing in common. Hope.

The Smell Of Other People's Houses is a wonderful novel that combines moments of despair and moments of hope in a perfect way. I really enjoyed discovering each character's past as well as their personalities throughout the novel. The fact that there were four different characters and four different views made the whole story much more intriguing. I also liked the fact that each character describes a lot how she or he feels because it made me feel like I really knew them. Overall, I thought The Smell Of Other People's Houses was a great book with an amazing story and fantastic characters.
