Dirty Little Secrets

This is the story of a teenage girl, Lucy, who is keeping big secrets.  Her mother is a hoarder.  Not only does she fill the house up with newspapers and magazines, but she is a bargain hunter and shops incessantly.  The worst part is that her neglect has gotten so bad that there is no hot water, the drains are clogged, the furnace doesn't work and the kitchen is covered in mold.

Of course this is embarrassing for Lucy and she does everything she can to hide this from her one and only friend.  The story gets more interesting and Lucy goes to great lengths (sometimes unbelievable) to keep her secrets.

The book was very interesting, and it's hard to believe that there are millions of people who live with this disorder.  I thought that some of the decisions that Lucy makes are so illogical that they are hard to believe, but it makes a good story and draws attention to a subject that maybe teens need to hear about.
