Dirty Little Secrets

Dirty Little SecretsDirty Little Secrets by C.J. Omololu
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the story of a teenage girl whose mother is a hoarder. In the outside world, her mother is a caring oncology nurse, at home, she is a psychological basket case. The story offers a very disturbing relationship between Lucy and her mother as well as sad unsatisfying relationships with her siblings, extended family, and absent father. Her mother’s problem affects every relationship in the family. The ending seemed abrupt and unrealistic. I didn’t feel Lucy’s problem was ever really reconciled. The author left me wondering if her attempts to cover up the problem worked. However, this novel was an interesting look at a rarely explored topic. A quick but thought-provoking read!
