"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!"
My name is Lola Rose.
That wasn't always my name. I used to be plain old Jayni - until my dad lost his temper, and things became really scary at home.
We had to run away in the middle of the night - me, my mum and my little brother Kenny. Now we're starting again in London - new names, new identities, a brand-new life. But escaping the past isn't as easy as I thought. And Dad might find us one day . . .
