Runaway
by Wendelin Van Draanen




Overview -
This diary of a runaway girl and her search for a home celebrates hope, resilience, and happy endings as only Wendelin Van Draanen, the author of Flipped and other acclaimed novels, can.

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." --The Sacramento Bee
