The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shortlisted for the Young Minds Book Award 2010
Told in an upbeat, teenage first person narrative, this is a moving and insightful story about coping with a compulsive disorder. Zelah Green describes herself as a Cleanaholic. She spends her life on ‘Germ Alert’ because she’s unable not to worry about the smallest speck of dirt. Mostly it’s manageable; sometimes it is not. Zelah’s stepmother finds it hard and sends Zelah off to a home for ‘crazy people’ in the hope that Zelah can fix herself up. What Zelah finds and how ‘craziness’ really is, is kindly and touchingly observed.
Zelah Green, Queen Of Clean by Vanessa Curtis
My name is Zelah Green and I am a Cleanaholic. I spend most of my life on Germ Alert. Or Dirt Alert.
Sol, who has brown eyes and olive skin. Sol, who I actually want to touch. Now I'm on Flirt Alert! Maybe, just maybe, something good could happen...
This is a moving story of one girl's attempt to come to terms with her grief, told with humour and real insight.
