Description

When life with Jayni's violent-tempered father becomes too frightening to cope with, Jayni, her mum and her little brother Kenny are forced to escape in the middle of the night. Slipping out of the house unseen, travelling up to London by train and checking into a hotel - it's almost like playing an elaborate game. They even make up false identities to protect their secret, and Jayni becomes the glamorous-sounding Lola Rose. But when money runs out and reality bites, what will they do next?

Reviews

"A natural storyteller ... compulsive reading" Guardian "Optimism and despair come in equal parts in Wilson's child-centred contemporary dramas" Oxford Times "I loved this book. It is honest and sensitive and a really quick read - that's because you'll need to keep turning the pages to find out what happens to Lola Rose, and Kendall, and her mum ... highly recommended" Reading Matters "A truly great read!" Yorkshire Post "The fact that it doesn't end in a fairy tale happy ever after makes it more realistic because life isn't like that!" Boox: nine
