Pictures of Hollis Woods

This is an okay book written by Patricia Reilly Giff. Hollis is a 12-year-old girl who's been in so many foster homes she can hardly remember them all. 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 won't let anyone separate them. She's escaped the system before; this time, she's taking Josie with her.

CBS released a television film based on the book in 2007 and starring Sissy Spacek.
