Holly is an adopted 12 year old girl that hates her life so she decides to runaway. (hence the name)She runs away to L.A. which is a long way from Alabama (I think). On her way to her home at the end of the story she writes all of her days in a journal blaming everything that has happened to her on her teacher that told her to write in a journal.
