D.L. Weller's powerful drama about child sexual exploitation and grooming.
Police are called to the family home when fourteen year old Holly goes missing for the night. As Holly's desperate parents try to track her down, Holly finds herself in danger.
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.
