Dirty Little Secrets by C.J. Omololu is one of the 20 Michigan Thumbs Up! award book selections of 2010. The complete list and voting information is available from the MLA website or at your local library.
Lucy never has her friends over to her house because she has a big secret to hide. Lucy’s mother has been compulsively hording for years, so the house doesn’t have rooms, just tunnels. Lucy is counting down the days until she is old enough to leave for college like her older siblings, but a horrible tragedy occurs, leaving Lucy with few options. Can she keep the family secret?
This is C.J. Omololu’s first book, but she has two more in the works, Destined and Fated.
