HEAP HOUSE, by Edward Carey

heap house

The story: The Iremongers run the dust heaps of Filching, keeping to themselves and becoming as cracked as the odd items they scavenge. Each one has a birth object that guides their destiny, but which also hides a grim secret. Now Clod Iremonger must decide whether to live up to his abilities as a Listener, or whether to fall in love with a freckle-faced outsider named Lucy Pennant. Because doing that would change everything. Not that everything is that great anyway.

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: This is, without question, the weirdest YA book I’ve ever read. However, if you (1) like weird stuff, or (2) are a fan of Lemony Snicket’s “Series of Unfortunate Events”, then you might just like this one!
