The Runaways

Children thrown together by force of circumstance A hard hitting well crafted story of great emotional range that has an important message about personal growth and friendship this novel is suitable for strong readers between the ages of 10 and 1 I really enjoyed this book It has an interesting plot and doesn t romanticize running away the characters face realistic conseuences for their actions This a great read for a rainy day My only criticism the characters are a little bit flat However this is overshadowed by Ruth Thompson s fantastic writing
