Publisher's Summary

When life with Jayni's violent-tempered father becomes too frightening to cope with, Jayni, her mum and her little brother Kenny are forced to escape in the middle of the night. Slipping out of the house unseen, travelling up to London by train and checking into a hotel – it's almost like playing an elaborate game. They even make up false identities to protect their secret, and Jayni becomes the glamorous-sounding Lola Rose. But when money runs out and reality bites, what will they do next?

great story!

we loved it the first time I listened to it I couldn't stop! I just had to get to the end of the story. it was so gripping and I was hanging on it's every word. once I'd finished it, my mum wanted to listen to it too! she loved just the same as me! so it's definitely for adults to. although not to young as there was some violence but if you listen all the way to the end you think(well I did)that Jay the dad is going to literally kill Victoria who is his wife! until wonderful aunty Barbara shows him....
sometimes I couldn't believe how silly Victoria could be!! and how she just forgave Jay! just like that after he consistently hits and kicks her! after all that is why Victoria and the kids ran away! so all to gether it's a great story!!!🤣😃😎😁😉I recommend it!

Good! ⭐️💕

Great, some stuff doesn’t make sense but overall 9/10, it probably relates to some situations, but not really, worth reading 👍😀

Lola Rose review

I think that the story is very good, just maybe Jacqueline Wilson shouldn't write about cancer, even though it makes the plot more real. I don't think writing about dying will really be best for children, it might scare them. Otherwise amazing story!
