Holly has run away before, but this time she actually gets away and what at first felt like an escape soon becomes a daily struggle for survival. She is smart and resourceful, and she manages to make it across the country on her own. But how long can this go on? It s getting harder to avoid the truth Holly is now homeless.
Runaway is a remarkably uplifting portrait of a girl still young and stubborn and naive enough to believe there s a better place for her in the world.
Will grab readers from the first entry. Kirkus Reviews
Holly s lively self lingers in the way the best characters do. Runaway is certainly one of the best young adult books of the year.
