My friends, like me, tend toward the sedentary. I do, however, know a few folks who are athletes or who actively engage in physical activity. So I have been hearing good things about Born to Run for quite awhile, but interestingly only from hard core runners.
Kevin is an 8th grader at a small rural school and the star of the track team. The school is so small that the whole 8th grade class is on the track team except for two students. Kevin hates track but he’s good at it and as all his friends are on the track team he goes along for the ride. One cold spring day the team is at an away meet, where Kevin lets a team mate run for him in his best event.
Oh. My. Gods. by Tera Lynn Childs is another fun read. Pheobe's world is turned upside down when her mom comes back from a vacation in Greece with a fiance and the announcement that she has to leave Los Angeles to move half way across the planet!
