Readers’ Comments ‘A dark story of a girl who must face the dangers of city life on her own. This is a very interesting read. The setting is well-described, as are the feelings of the girl.’ Female reader, aged 53 ‘The horrifying account of a teenage girl with a pretty horrible mother who must try to survive when she runs away. His is not your typical beach read. Parts of it are distressing, but I’s always gripping. I didn’t love the cover, but the writing style (first person) works well here. A vivid account I’d happily recommend.’ Male reader, aged 52 ‘I thought this was fascinating. Very punchy. Very fast-paced.’ Male reader, aged 38 ‘The saddest part about this was story was that it actually happened. A brave author. Excellent!’ Male reader, aged 29 ‘This is a page-turner in every way. I’s dark, rarely amusing, but very gripping. I wouldn’t say I enjoyed it – but it was a a captivating read. The writing style works superbly for this type of story. You really feel you are there.’ Female reader, aged 39 To Sum It Up: ‘A powerful, often unsettling account of a runaway girl and the dangers she faced. A Red Ribbon Winner and highly recommended.’ The Wishing Shelf Book Awards
