RUN ZAN RUN! Summary of the book: Katie is almost fourteen years old and living in England. Every day at school she has to face her friends who are no longer talking to her and teachers who won´t listen. But that´s not the worst. Katie is constantly being threatened and bullied by Ivy and her gang. When Katie meets Zan everything changes. Zan is homeless, living in a cardboard box and with no one to trust. Slowly Katie realizes that there´s something wrong with Zan. What is she afraid of? Who is Zan? On the inside Zan is a sweet and kind person, but to strangers she can be perceived as rough and mean. When Zan first met Katie she didn’t really care about her, but still in some way she felt sorry for her. Later on she became more and more friendly with Katie even if she would get upset with her sometimes. Zan doesn’t want to be found because of the evil man who killed her parents (Mr Whittaker). She’s a problem child who used to run away from home, and when the house got burnt down everyone blamed her. Zan is a strong person both physically and mentally. It strikes me that she´s tough enough to live on her own without her parents, without a home and without real food.

Who is Katie? Katie is also a nice and caring person. Before Katie met Zan she was quiet and didn´t take much place in conversations with neither her teachers nor her parents. She kind of just went with the flow without protesting against her bullies and teachers. When Zan came along it gave her new hope because Ivy got scared of the weird ‘’lassie’’. Everyone at school thinks that Katie and Zan are the same person because no one has seen them together. Katie can now take advantage of her being Zan to prevent Mr Whittaker from finding Zan. This gives her respect at school, that the little girl Katie could fight Ivy and her gang all by herself. In the end, Katie became a tough girl with no fears. Just like Zan. What do you think about the book? I think that this book was really exciting and adventurous. It has real-life situations and could possibly be based on a true story. I like it when the author leaves ‘’cliff-hangers’’ at the end of each chapter. Then it becomes almost impossible to stop reading. I usually don’t read so often but this book was probably one of the better.
