The Running Dream
by Wendelin Van Draanen [YA VanDraanen]
I really enjoyed this book. It's very realistic, and it was one of those books which I couldn't put down. I chose this book because it was a Golden Sower, but I also picked it up because it was a realistic fiction book. The title of the book really does reflect on what the book is about. It's about a girl who loses her leg in a tragic car accident, and is gaining confidence to learn how to run again, because she loves running and track, and wants to run again. It's her dream to run again. And she has these 'running dreams' where she is running in her dream, even though she can't in real life. -- review submitted by Amilia B. - a customer of the Gere Branch Library
