Summary
"Josie has a secret: her mother is a hoarder. Tasha has a secret, too: her mothers new boyfriend keeps trying to sneak into her room and seduce her. The two 16-year-olds dont get along at school, but one night Tasha bolts from her dangerous home and finds herself at Josies door. Josies mother is in jail for debt, and the girls are alone in the cramped, crowded, bursting home. Slowly, they begin to talk about the challenges they face, a process of sharing that lessens their shame, guilt and fear. With each others support, they may even find a way to save themselves from their parents demons. Behind Closed Doors is an unflinching examination of the stigmas surrounding mental illness, abuse and poverty, and an affirming portrayal of the power of female friendships and the power of honesty to heal"--
Summary
In alternating chapters, teens Tasha and Josie tell how each becomes temporarily homeless and how they find strength and friendship together as they try to regain control of their lives
