They stumble across some money with which they try to buy friendship in their class but with teachers and parents closing in the two are forced to run away The story centres on the brilliant and unusual friendship that develops between these two I read this when I was edging into my teens I don t remember much of the story but I do remember loving it I felt the need to search for it and recognised the cover instantly It s stuck in my head all these years so I deem it worthy of 4 stars for that even though my true recollections are fuzzy Secret Agent Minister and Deadly Texas Rose years so I deem it worthy of 4 stars for that even though my true recollections are fuzzy

Ruth Thomas ↠ 5 Summary

Children thrown together by force of circumstance A hard hitting well crafted story of great emotional range that has an important message about personal growth and friendship this novel is suitable for strong readers between the ages of 10 and 1 I really enjoyed this book It has an interesting plot and doesn t romanticize running away the characters face realistic conseuences for their actions This a great read for a rainy day My only criticism the characters are a little bit flat However this is overshadowed by Ruth Thompson s fantastic writing
