During the next few weeks Charlie persuades herself and little Robin that Mark and Jo are going to run off together so Robin does a runna. Mean while little Freddie runs away from Lottie whislt in the park and cannot be found. So together (yet in different time periods) Charlie and Lottie both pray for the lost childrens safety.
This book is great, a funny jet touching story which over 8's would enjoy. It is writen in the same, funny way as all Jacqueline Wilsons other succeses. It was a great read so I awarded it 5/5!!!
