The Lovereading4Kids comment

True-to-life, at times very emotional, but totally and utterly unputdownable. That’s what my 12 year old said of it. She read it virtually in one sitting and she’s not a book worm. In fact, I’d say she’s quite reluctant at times to pick up a book.

Synopsis

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. But when the money runs out and reality bites, is it still a game they should play?

Reviews

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! Boox: nine

According to a recent Mori poll, Jacqueline was voted English children favourite children’s author. She has sold millions of books and in the UK alone the total stands at over 25 million!

In 2002 Jacqueline was awarded the OBE for services to literacy in schools and from 2005 to 2007 she was the Children’s Laureate. In 2008 she became Dame Jacqueline Wilson.
