An amazing story of two siblings and their descent into extreme poverty and the resoucefulness with which they escape it by the multi-award-winning, Waterstones Children's Book Prize-shortlisted author of Boy 87.
Lola's life is about to become unrecognisable. So is Lola. Everything used to be comfortable. She lived in a big house with her family, where her biggest problems were arguing with her little brother or being told she couldn't have a new phone. But as one disaster follows another, the threads of her home and family begin to unravel. Cut off from everything she has known before, Lola must find a new way to survive. Now, an ordinary girl must become extraordinary.
