summary The Runaways

Winner of the prestigious Guardian Children's Fiction Award in 1988 this book is the compelling and uniue story of two children Julian and Nathan from inner city London Outsiders at school and unhappy at home the two are strangely drawn together. I have been trying to think of books that I enjoyed as an older child pre adolescent I clearly remember selecting this from the school library at about eleven years of age because nothing else grabbed my attention that day and then I remember not being able to put it down once I started reading it Yet I can barely remember the story So I give it 3 stars tentatively knowing that at the time I did in fact really like it but not really being able to put my finger on what it was that engaged me so
