D.L.Weller's powerful drama about child sexual exploitation and grooming.
Fourteen year old Holly can't believe her luck when she is asked out by twenty year old Jay; so why is her best friend Leah not happy for her and why can't her parents just leave her alone?
D.L. Weller has done extensive research with victims and their families and professionals working in child protection and safeguarding. Holding On To You, although fictional, is informed and inspired by these interviews. It explores a problem thought to affect tens of thousands of children, of all backgrounds, yet that still remains largely hidden and apparently unaddressed in many regions.
