Stealing Henry by Carolyn MacCullough
Roaring Brook Press, 2005
Barnes & Noble:
“The night Savannah brains her stepfather with the frying pan is the night she decides to leave home for good.”
Fleeing from her stepfather’s wrath, Savannah and her half brother, Henry, travel north toward their mother Alice’s childhood home. As the runaways embark upon their journey, another story begins to unfold: glimpses of Alice as a teenager, caught in poignant first love and completely anaware of all the consequences love can carry.
