About the Book

The second, highly anticipated novel from Carnegie-shortlisted author Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock.

Come on a journey across the rural American West . . .

Meet the teenagers who live in the small towns across these states, separated by distance, but whose stories are woven together in the most unexpected of ways.

Whether they are brought together by the spread of wildfire, by the priest who’s moved from state to state or by the hunt for a missing child, these incredible tales blaze with secrets, rage and love.

A novel like no other, this intricate, intense and beautiful book will take your breath away.

'It's cut like a gemstone. Turn the pages, and facets gleam.' Hiliary McKay

'Breathes life into wonderful, complex characters.' Lisa Heathfield

‘A heartbreakingly brilliant tangle of teenage voices.’ Judith Eagle

  • Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock

    Born and raised in Alaska and a longtime journalist for Alaska Public Radio, Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock spent ten years fishing commercially and raised her children on a boat in Southeast Alaska - bringing a rare authenticity to her writing about America's last frontier. She now lives in Lyons, Colorado, where she's slowly rebuilding her house after the catastrophic floods of September 2013. The Smell of Other People's Houses is her first novel.

“Every page of her books throb with truth... [Hitchcock's] writing is honed and polished until it glints”
- The Times, Children's Book of the Week
“A beautifully crafted exploration of life in small towns... Revelatory moments accumulate and recurrent names bind the stories together, emerging from the shadows to the limelight and reminding us that there are no minor characters in real life. The ingenuity of the links means that as soon as you finish you want to read it all again”
- The Sunday Times, Children's Book of the Week
