Synopsis: For sixteen years, Lucy has kept her mother's hoarding a secret. She's had to -- nobody would understand the stacks of newspapers and mounds of garbage so high they touch the ceiling and the rotting smell that she's always worried would follow her out the house. After years of keeping people at a distance, she finally has a best friend and maybe even a boyfriend if she can play it right. As long as she can make them think she's normal. When Lucy arrives home from a sleepover to find her mother dead under a stack of National Geographics, she starts to dial 911 in a panic, but pauses before she can connect. She barely notices the filth and trash anymore, but she knows the paramedics will. First the fire trucks, and then news cameras that will surely follow. No longer will they be remembered as the nice oncology nurse with the lovely children -- they'll turn into that garbage-hoarding freak family on Collier Avenue. With a normal life finally within reach, Lucy has only minutes to make a critical decision. How far will she go to keep the family secrets safe?
Dirty Little Secrets was one of those books where you are desperate to finish it. You just need to know how the main character fixes everything. Its a terribly story. There were moments that broke my heart, and there were moments were I couldnt help but softly smile to myself. It was just gorgeous. I fell in love with Lucy as she discovered information about her mother she wish she never knew. I kinda wish we could find out how her siblings react in the end of the story. Truth be told I was looking forward to that. But nonetheless an amazing story. Beautifully written. Read it and fall in love.
