The Smell of Other People's Houses

WHY WE LOVED IT:

It will break your heart in the very best way.

It’s set in 1970s Alaska (totally different!) and you’ll be transported into other people’s minds and lives in a way that’ll make your heart grow as you read it.

The writing is heartfelt and amazing!

It’s short and you can read it quickly and then pass on to a friend (you’ll want to!) 

Release Date: February 23

 

In Alaska, 1970, being a teenager isn’t like being a teenager anywhere else. Ruth has a secret that she can’t hide forever. Dora wonders if she can ever truly escape where she comes from, even when good luck strikes. Alyce is trying to reconcile her desire to dance, with the life she’s always known on her family’s fishing boat. Hank and his brothers decide it’s safer to run away than to stay home—until one of them ends up in terrible danger.

Four very different lives are about to become entangled.
