The House We Grew Up In by Lisa Jewell

The House We Grew Up InThe House We Grew Up In by Lisa Jewell

Hoarding, suicide, family secrets this one has it all and a little bit more.

The Bird family has so many secrets that no one can know about and one of the largest is that Mama Bird is a full-blown hoarder complete with newspaper paths. There is one tiny area that contains a recliner where she sleeps, eats, lives, and corresponds with an online lover. But what does all this clutter really cover up? And why is Rhys’ room just as he left it when he killed himself? This is a fantastic book about a family creating it’s own tragedy in their own very special way. The last paragraph will leave you gasping as this book ends exactly the way it should!

Well worth the read!
