Praise for Other People’s Secrets:
The New York Times

“[A] dynamic debut . . . [the] surprising plot twists match eccentric, reckless characters.”
Publishers Weekly

“Thrilling and punchy in the best ways possible.”
The British Columbia Review

“Clever and endlessly compelling, Other People’s Secrets hooks you from the very first sentence and doesn’t let go. This book, like its messy and endearing protagonist Dumpster Baby, is full of both heart and razor-sharp edges, and it’s one you won’t want to miss.”
—Brianna Labuskes, bestselling author of A Familiar Sight

Other People’s Secrets has all the things I demand of a crime novel: fun dialogue, quick pacing, a perfectly plotted quest, and a legitimately terrifying meth dealer. It’s also got a thing too precious to demand of anything, and that’s heart. This book is full of funny, flawed, real characters whose humanity and depth reaches out from every page. I read it cover-to-cover in three days.” 
—Andrew Battershill, award-winning author for Marry, Bang, Kill.

Other People’s Secrets is a frank, funny, edge-of-your-seat thriller that yanks you in on page one and doesn’t let go. Hambrock’s refreshing voice is pitch-perfect as she explores the simmering tensions between the haves and have-nots in a colourful resort town. With unforgettable characters and life crackling on every page, this is a standout debut.” 
—Michelle Kaeser, author of The Towers of Babylon

“The madcap energy and inimitable voice of Other People’s Secrets are as irresistible as its protagonist, Baby—an impulsive, stubborn, 29-year-old wild child, fighting to save the town and chosen family she loves. As Baby brawls, drinks, and schemes, toe-to-toe with a meth kingpin and a family of callous, ultra-wealthy vultures, in a world that’s been stacked against her from the moment she was found as an infant in a dumpster, the writing is vivid and close to the skin, making visceral the hangovers, clogged toilets, and joys that make life worth living.” 
—Kim Fu, author of Lesser Known Monsters of the 21st Century
