Teenage runaway dreams of success in California.

There may be nothing more terrifying for a parent than to realize that your child has decided to run away from home. A child who makes the decision to flee their home is taking a great risk in order to search for something missing in their lives.

In Robbie Haden’s new book RUN GIRL RUN, red-haired teenage runaway Haley-Jo Bodine leaves her Texas home with aspirations of becoming a model and actress in California.

Along her travels, Haley-Jo encounters many of the harsh realities that teenagers around the world struggle with- drinking, drug use, cutting and sexual assault.

“The subjects in Run Girl Run are treated with sensitivity appropriate for teens,” said Haden. “This is a cautionary tale for kids at risk and is also an enlightening glimpse into how teens think.”

Will young Haley-Jo make it back to her family in Texas or will the open road and all of its many challenges lead her down a darker path?
