Reviews for Pictures of Hollis Woods
5Pictures of Hollis Woods is a very moving story of an abandoned girl who has difficulty fitting into foster homes, and is constantly getting in trouble for running away. This novel contains two narratives: one in the present, as Hollis tries to fit in with Josie, an older woman slowly succumbing to dementia; and one in the form of flashbacks. Slowly, these two stories are drawn together as Hollis tries to protect herself and Josie, as well as coming to terms with the events of the previous summer.

Ms. Giff has written a wonderful novel. The switching between the two plots is handled well. Hollis is a beautifully drawn character. She is difficult and introverted, but she is an artist and is ultimately able to overcome her defensiveness and become part of a family - even an extended family. I would highly recommend this novel to young and old alike.
