Pictures of Hollis Woods by Patricia Reilly GiffThis Newberry Honor Book shares the story of twelve year-old Hollis; a foster child with a habit of running away. When she is placed with Josie, a kind and creative artist, Hollis feels safe enough to stay, but now there may be another reason to leave. Written in chapters that alternate between descriptions of Hollis’s drawings and events of her current life, this is an ideal text for mini lessons focused on non-linear text structure and plot analysis.
