Jean Ure is excellent at getting in under the skin of the lives of teenagers and the issues they must deal with as they grow up. Here, the love, hate relationship of mother and daughter are brought into sharp focus, which in turn leads to the daughter and a friend running away to London. Excitement initially at the adventure but then things don’t quite go as they imagined and the girls realize that perhaps there is more to home life than meets the eye.
Fourteen-year-old Jade is fed up with fighting with her mum and step-dad, and her shy sixteen-year-old friend, Honey is having a miserable time with her mum, but when Jade decides they should both run away, Honey isn't so sure. But, when they get to London, things don't work out quite how they expected.
