We're coming to you live from my web- blog to bring the interesting report on the book Runaway by Wendelin Van Draanen. Wendelin also is the author of Flipped (an amazing favorite of mine) How I Survived Being A Girl, the Sammy Keys series, and others.
Runaway is about a girl named Holly who is a Foster child. Holly writes in a journal, and thus-- our book.
I enjoyed Runaway, because it was very realistic. The journal design worked out well, and the plot progressed nicely.
