When a young man takes in an unfortunate vagrant, helping him clean up and get back on his feet, a special relationship begins to blossom between the two unlikely companions.


Don't Call Me Dirty was a 3.5-star read for me. I liked the way the story looked at how the homeless and gay people can sometimes be viewed, with those attitudes helping to tie the characters together. I found some of the LGBT portrayal a little off-putting, but that may be because I am reading the story from a different cultural standpoint. Overall, though, it was a sweet story with a good message.

I received this book as a free eBook ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
