A hard-hitting novel following two months in the life of 14 year old Lisa as she runs away from home and learns to survive on the streets. Second edition of this critically acclaimed novel first published in 2008.
'Extremely well-written. The narrative voice is particularly strong and supple, conveying both Lisa's teenage defiance and her immense vulnerability.'
'Breath-taking...I was totally amazed by it. By god it deserves a hearing.'
'This book completely knocked me sideways. Laura Canning's portrayal of the forgotten and misunderstood youth of today is vivid and shocking. It's a page-turner and an eye-opener. It is fresh and original and speaks for the disenchanted voice of a generation much like Catcher in the Rye would have done to the youth of the 50s.'
'...destined for great things, one of those "important" novels that critics sometimes harp on about.'
