Description
The late author and human rights activist Siobhan Dowd, who died of cancer at 47 in 2007, left behind a small collection of extraordinary, emotionally honest novels, including this one for young adults, published after her death and a finalist for both the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize and Costa Book Award. Fourteen-year-old Holly Hogan despises her life in England and dreams of finding her mother in Ireland. Placed with a foster family, she discovers a shining blond wig, and with it a new, more confident persona. As Solace, she runs away toward the coast in a bittersweet and sometimes hilarious journey, discovering who she really is and gradually unlocking the secrets of her past.

"With rare, raw honesty, Dowd writes about the legacy of abandonment, memory's comforting tricks, and the painful, believable ways that love heals."Booklist (starred review)
