Coming Clean - Kimberly Rae Miller When I first saw the title of this memoir, I thought it was another story about recovery from drugs or alcohol. I tend to be a sucker for those. However, Ms. Miller writes about growing up as the only daughter of a hoarder. Miller talks about the struggles she went through trying to hide her home life from her friends. Not only was her father a hoarder but her mother was struggling with depression as well. This is one of those times that I wish we could give half stars because I really think this was about 2.5 stars. It was interesting to see hoarding from the inside but I found myself wanting more on the mental health side of things. I'm thinking that's just my therapist training coming out but it would have been a more well rounded retelling I think. All in all, I think this book is worth the read just to see hoarding impacts everyone and how much of a struggle it is to recover. I would especially recommend this book to anyone who may have watched Hoarders on A&E and thought, why don't they just stop? This book might help you understand that a little better.
