I put the wig on and I thought myself into Solace. I was Solace the Unstoppable the smooth-walking, sharp-talking glamour girl, and I was heading into a red sky, thumb out and fag in hand.
Holly is sick of being told what to do. She’s ditching her old life and she’s heading off. She puts on her blonde wig, blows herself a kiss and flutters her eyelashes. And now she’s ready. She’s Solace, Solace of the road.
I didn’t like the other book I'vs read by Siobhan Dowd, A Swift Pure Cry, but I might give this a go one day. If only for the beautiful cover!
“No clue about why the Queen vanished had ever been found. Until now…”

Charlie and her friend, Toby, must race against time on a dangerous mission too uncover the sinister truth.
But in this shadowy world of secrets and lies, there is more to fear than they can possibly imagine…
I won this in a contest at the fabulous Chicklish. It sounds like another brilliant UK debut. Thanks, Luisa!
