Lola Rose by Jacqueline Wilson
When Jayni, her mum and little brother have to run away from her abusive father, it starts off as a big adventure. They slip out at night, go up to London by train and stay in a hotel. They even make up false identities to protect their secret and Jayni becomes the glamorous-sounding Lola Rose. But when the money runs out and reality bites, is it still a game they should play? Another brilliantly crafted story of real family life from the prize-winning, children's favourite, Jacqueline Wilson.
