Awesome!

'Runaway' is an amazing book that gives you insight on what life is like for homeless people. I'm sure I cried at least once the first time i read it. It's so sad how Holly is homeless, but telling herself shes a gypsy, and how shes so excited when she finds things in the trash like chicken nuggets. But it has a happy ending- she's adopted by a loving daughter and mother- the daughters like 40 and she runs a buisness and lives with her 70 or so year old mother. Theres some smoking, drinking, violence, and a touch of swearing. Also, this is a sequel book to another one of the authors books, sammy keys and the sisters of mercy.

Ok book for kids 10 and up.

Its a reasonably good book. Slightly unrealistic at times, but alright. Some non-graphic violence at the beginning by foster parents. The main character's mother died of a drug overdose and used drugs regularly. Kids and teens over 10 can read this.

One of the Best Books Ever.

This book is one of my faveriote books ever. It doesn't sugercoat anything like Disney does,It teaches kids survival,and it's just awesome. Sure there is drugs and some violence but i think 14 and up is a little overboard.

Runaway.

The language in this book is a little worse than "Pervert" But, Its a good book, read it. I enjoyed reading this book very much my friends said they haven't seen me read so much in my life, because I couldn't keep my nose out of it.
