'Wendy trudged the streets not sure where to go. She'd left home that morning, her rucksack over her shoulder with a few clothes, but with no clear plan of what she should do.

If she was uncertain which way to take, she was very certain she couldn't simply carry on with life as if nothing had happened. Her world had fallen apart.'

Wendy is devastated when her parents announce that they are seperating. Filled with misery, she runs away fro home and makes a new friend who offers sympathy and practical help. It doesn't take long, however to realise that she has made a terrible mistake. Terrified and alone, Wendy wonders whether she will ever escape alive.

"The Runaway was an awesome book that kept me on the edge of my seat until the end. I loved reading this book and couldn't put it down til I knew what would happen to poor Wendy."

Trisha Bleau, Teens4Jesus Online Ministry

"This is a highly topical book, . . . this is no trite or clumsy imposition of a ‘gospel' message; the deft weaving of an overtly spiritual dimension (notably the providence of God) into the story, achieved the author's light touch, only adds to its plausibility."

Both the author and the publishers are to be commended for producing this book. It deserves a wide reading among teenagers, from Christian homes and otherwise.
