This girl, Lucy, and her mother have an issue that needs to be amended. It needs to be resolved before both of them are lost within the piles of newspaper and the endless amounts of trash. Yep, your assumptions are correct, Lucy's mother is a hoarder. Unable to restrain herself Lucy's mother just keeps building and building upon what used to be their home but is now, what we would call a landfill. Lucy being the only one in the home that can alter the situation and make both of their lives better, sets off to do exactly that. Hopefully before her mother's addiction can become fatal.
Okay so, I did not think I would but I adored this book. It portrays not only the seriousness of hoarding but also they way it effects everyone in a family and just the person hoarding.
That's all for now! Bye
