Clementine lane is a humorous urban life story written in a contemporary style of fiction. The story is based on three interwoven narrative plotlines set in Clementine Lane, where everyone is in everyone’s business. Things change when a drug rehabilitation centre is open and a drug addict dies in suspicious circumstances. The people come together to investigate and protest the matter, which shapes the main storyline.
Aside from the main story, I enjoyed the second and third plotline of the novel, focusing on a teenage girl called Sienna. She befriends a homeless alcoholic named Brendan who lives in an abandoned warehouse. The warehouse is where the proposed site for the rehabilitation centre is. Brendan is a complex character and the two really meshed well together.
The premise of the book covers subject matters like depression, suicide, drugs, addiction. The literature was well thought out and written. The pace of the story was steady and kept the reader intrigued.
I recommend this book to fiction readers.
