Nobody's Home by Cliff Fazzolari

SterlingHouse Publisher, Inc.
Pittsburgh, PA
Genre: Fiction
Rating: Good
ISBN: 1563153874, $11.21, 240 pp.

Nobody’s Home is a dramatic novel about a poor family with a dominant-alcoholic-murderous father, a short-lived-loving mother and two brothers written in the first person by the innocent-unpopular teenage daughter, Shari.

Cliff Fazzolari is a good writer, the story flows smoothly, and it’s well edited. However, Fazzolari lost me as a reader after the father killed Shari’s mother, how he killed her and how Shari and her brother Russell, knowing the truth, dealt with the murder and their father. The story lost its credibility for me, but you might give it a try and see what you think.
