This weeks book review is all about Lola Rose by Jacqueline Wilson.
Jayni (Lola Rose)is a girl who has a bad tempered Dad. Her Dad used to hit Jayni’s Mum, but one night he hit Jayni. Now Jayni, Mum and Jayni’s little brother Kenny are on the run. They now live in London, but will Dad find them?
“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?”
This was a very emotional book, I felt relieved that they managed to escape unharmed, I felt a little scared that the dad would find them and who know’s what could have happened! I would have been petrified if her Dad was out looking for me!
My all time favourite character would be Jayni (Lola Rose). I like her best because she loves to scrapbook! Yes she loves to scrapbook, which gave me an idea to make a family scrapbook and I have been working on it quite a bit. She can be a bit of a scaredy cat but we are all different so she can’t help that.
My least favourite character would have to be Jayni’s Dad. He is evil! He used to hit Jayni’s Mum! Even a look can set him off, so you wouldn’t want to get on the wrong side of him.
I really liked Lola Rose and I would totally read it again.
See you next time in Abigail’s Book Nook!
