MG - No Place for Kids (by Alison Lohans)
12.7 x 17.8 cm (5 x 7 in)
Sarah and her older sister Jennifer are in dire straits - uncared for, and often hungry. Their mother has died and, in his grief, their dad has turned to drinking for solace. He loses his job, then their house - and so the small family drifts from one place to another. When things reach yet another breaking point, the two sisters decide to go on the run. Can they manage to get from Winnipeg to Vancouver, where their Aunt Ellen lives?
