SOLACE OF THE ROAD, by Siobhan Dowd

Her past is before her, and there's no turning back...

Holly has spent the last nine years in and out of foster homes, but when she finally gets a “permanent” placement with boring Ray & Fiona, she immediately starts scheming to hitch-hike to Ireland to find her birth mother.  Finding a blonde wig in Fiona’s stuff, her transformation into “Solace” begins, and before long, she’s living a dangerous life, thumb out at the side of the road.  Solace is brave and bold … and maybe, by the end, Holly will be brave and bold enough to confront the truth about her past without a disguise.
