  • Great topic, but hard to read for me. I am not used to that lanuage.

    Plot: "It's a cold, hard, cruel fact that my mother loved heroin more than she loved me." Holly is in her fifth foster home in two years and she's had enough. She's run away before and always been caught quickly. But she's older and wiser now--she's twelve--and this time she gets away clean. Through tough and tender and angry and funny journal entries, Holly spills out her story. We travel with her across the country--hopping trains, scamming food, sleeping in parks or homeless encampments. And we also travel with her across the gaping holes in her heart--as she finally comes to terms with her mother's addiction and death. Runaway is a remarkably uplifting portrait of a girl still young and stubborn and naive enough to hold out hope for finding a better place in the world, and within herself, to be. The language made it kind of hard for me to read this book. In the beginning, I was convinced that Holly was at least 14, maybe 17 years old. That she is only 12 was a shock for me. As i know that the book is fiction, it frightens me that it could be true. How hard can life actually be for kids in this age already - a very up to date topic, as we have to deal with lots of refugees form Syria and Afghanistan coming to Central Europe recently. Great story, but hard to read for me!
