When life with Jayni's violent-tempered father becomes too frightening to cope with, Jayni, her mum and her little brother Kenny are forced to escape in the middle of the night. Slipping out of the house unseen, travelling up to London by train and checking into a hotel - it's almost like playing an elaborate game. They even make up false identities to protect their secret, and Jayni becomes the glamorous-sounding Lola Rose. But when money runs out and reality bites, what will they do next?

"A natural storyteller ... compulsive reading." (The Guardian)
"Optimism and despair come in equal parts in Wilson's child-centred contemporary dramas." (The Oxford Times)
"A truly great read." (Yorkshire Post)
I think that the story is very good, just maybe Jacqueline Wilson shouldn't write about cancer, even though it makes the plot more real. I don't think writing about dying will really be best for children, it might scare them. Otherwise amazing story!
Great story! I love all the characters.
I would definitely recommend reading this book, I very very much loved it.
