Memories of Mum are the only thing that make Holly Hogan happy. She hates her foster family, with their false sympathy and too-nice ways. She hates her entire life: her stupid school, the way everyone is always on at her. Then she finds the wig. Wearing the long, flowing blonde locks, Holly is transformed. She’s not Holly any more: she’s Solace: the girl with the slinkster walk and sharp talk. She’s older, more confident – the kind of girl who can face the world head on. The kind of girl who can walk right out of her humdrum life, hitch to Ireland and find her mum. So begins a bittersweet and hilarious journey… A brilliant and moving coming-of-age story by the late Carnegie Medal winner, Siobhan Dowd.
“Solace of the Road has it all really: grit, pathos, humour, sharp observation, and a central character who catches your heart and doesn’t let it go.” Bookbag
