Another great bargain book has been read! I read Dirty Little Secrets by C. J. Omololu yesterday. I would absolutely recommend it, not only because of the price ($1.99 through a bookbub.com email), but it was a great book! I literally could not put this book down.
The book is about a teenage girl that lives with her mother who is a hoarder. I’ve watched many TV shows about hoarders, so I could completely picture their living conditions (although, the author also does a great job of describing it – no need to watch bad TV to enjoy the book!).
The girl has spent her whole life hiding their “secret” from the rest of the world.
I am trying to get my daughter to read it next. This book can easily span all age groups.
Goodreads describes the book:
With details that are as fascinating as they are disturbing, C. J. Omololu weaves an hour-by-hour account of Lucy’s desperate attempt at normalcy. Her fear and isolation are palpable as readers are pulled down a path from which there is no return, and the impact of hoarding on one teen’s life will have readers completely hooked.
(For those who have finished DLS, there is an “AFTER” chapter on the website www.cjomololu.com. Contains many spoilers, so only for those who have read the book).
