Pictures of Hollis Woods

Pictures of Hollis Woods is by Patricia Reilly Giff. Hollis was found in the woods when she was a baby. She has been shuffled from foster home to foster home ever since. She prides herself on being tough and a loner. She even runs away from the one family who really wants her. When she is placed with an elderly artist she finds a place she wants to stay. But Josie is forgetful, if Social Services finds out they won't let her stay. She's determined to stay with Josie even if it means they have to run away together. A must read book! A tender and poignant story exploring the meaning of family and forgiveness.
