Featured Teen Book Review of the Week: Pictures of Hollis

Pictures of Hollis Woods, by Patricia Reilly Giff

Describe the book: Hollis woods is a foster kid who thinks she has to run away from everybody. A touching story Of a teenage girl just wishing for a family, Hollis tells her story through art and memories, and in the end finally finds her place in the world.

What did you think: This book almost made me cry at parts, but I just couldn't put it down. I was always wondering what was going to happen next. My absolute favorite part was when Hollis finally sees Stephen again and he asks her if she was ready to come home.

Who would you recommend it to: People who love a good story with a happy ending.
