Publisher Comments:

Hollis Woods has been in so many foster homes she can hardly remember them all. She even runs away from the Regans, the one family who offers her a home.

When Hollis is sent to Josie, an elderly artist who is quirky and affectionate, she wants to stay. But Josie is growing more forgetful every day. If Social Services finds out, they’ll take Hollis away and move Josie into a home. Well, Hollis Woods won’t let anyone separate them. She’s escaped the system before; this time, she plans to take Josie with her.

Yet behind all her plans, Hollis longs for her life with the Regans, fixing each moment of her time with them in pictures she’ll never forget.

From the Hardcover edition.

Synopsis:

A Newbery Honor Book. Reprint.

Synopsis:

A troublesome twelve-year-old orphan, staying with an elderly artist who needs her, remembers the only other time she was happy in a foster home, with a family that truly seemed to care about her.

"Pictures of Hollis Woods" is a fantastic book that will keep your students on their toes. It is an exceptional book for your readers interested in art, and creativity. I decided to read this book this summer, and I was unable to put it down. As a teacher, it is a great book to incorporate into your literacy centers, or group discussion.
