LoveReading View on Lola Rose

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.

Lola Rose Synopsis

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?
