Buried by Robin Merrow Maccready

Careful planning and constant control is Claudine's protection. Order is her weapon. She's long buried her own needs and dreams to cover for her alcoholic mom. But when Mom suddenly disappeares—another alcoholic binge?—seventeen-year-old Claudine finds herself all alone, and a much darker reality emerges from beneath years of angry denial and enabling behavior. And as the truth comes closer to the surface, Claudine must dig for the answers she's always worked so hard to cover up.

My Thoughts:

I really liked this book. It really threw me off at the end of it (I was not expecting that!). If you don't know what I'm talking about I suggest you read the book. Claudine's mother is gone when she wakes up and this is not a big surprise. Her mother is an alcoholic and leaves with her boyfriends to different places for a little while and she always comes back. This time her mom doesn't come back wich kind of freaks out Claudine. Claudine is a clean freak and throughout the book she is cleaning the trailer and her hands turn red. She washes her hands in HOT water, which makes her hands a lot worse. The ending is CRAZY! I enjoyed this book a lot!
My Rating for the Book: 8/10
Cover: I thought the cover went really well with the book. In the book, Claudine has Post Its ALL over the house (She likes to remind herself what she needs to clean/do).
