Summary

Everyone has a secret. But Lucy's is bigger and dirtier than most. It's one she's been hiding for years: that her mom's out-of-control hoarding has turned their lives into a world of garbage and shame. She has managed to keep her home life hidden from her best friend and her crush, knowing they'd be disgusted by the truth. So, when her mom dies suddenly in their home, Lucy hesitates to call 911 because revealing their way of life would make her future unbearable - and she begins her two-day plan to set her life right.

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.

painful to listen to

"Dirty Little Secrets" is interesting, but the narration is painful because there is no flow. For a while I thought it was a novel in verse form, but I checked the book and it isn't done that way. I have no explanation as to why the narrator chose to put in all the pauses or lengthen the words she does.

Good.

I liked the story, it was really good and emotional. The narrator was really good but I found the way she talked really distracting. I...felt like...she.........talked like...this....the whole...time. She was very animated and really good but I felt she could talk more normal. Overall a good listen
