The Hostel Angel  by Barbara Bakhurst

Just one of seven pieces combined to form monolog 2, our new selection of fresh writing from within the Chickenshed community. Showing at Chickenshed from 12 February until 2 March.

Never giving up hope is tough when you’re 14 and living life on the margins. Sunny and her step dad have fallen on hard times. She keeps a chart to mark the nights spent in her hostel room together with her cherished memories and special box of treasures all of which remind her of Mum. But where is Mum, and when will they see her again?
