Kimberly Rae Miller grew up in almost unimaginable squalor, complete with rats, fleas, and unusable kitchens and bathrooms. The author’s parents couldn’t help themselves; their homes were overrun with her hoarder father’s “papers” and junk and her depressed mother’s unnecessary, often unopened online purchases. It’s a sad story–it’s clear that Miller had to take the role of “parent” to her own parents from a young age–but it is leavened with humor in places and has a happy ending. Miller is remarkably free of bitterness and it is clear that she loves her mom and dad despite their issues. Well worth reading. Find it in our catalog here.
