Great Teen Read Suggestions from Students

 

Students at Mapleview Intermediate School in Kimberly have been working on book reviews, and I will be featuring their work over the next few weeks. Here is our first guest reviewer, Katelyn, with a review of The Running Dream.

 

 

The Running Dream

By: Katelyn

For the young runner, Jessica, breaking a running record at a school  track meet  was everything until the ride home. When the tragic car accident,  that included Jessica’s bus, cleared up it  left one dead and one without a leg. As Jessica struggles to even get up the stairs she constantly wonders if she will ever run again.


After the accident Jessica hasn’t been the same. Without running her life is boring. Then finally one day her best friend talks her into going back to school. She is invited to a track meet where  her coach talks to her about a fake leg that will allow her to run, the only problem is the cost of the fake leg. As her school track team tries to raise money to get their fastest runner back  on the track Jessica never gives up.


I recommend this amazing story full of hope and dreams to young adults because of the mature topics. Readers should be mature and not looking for a humorous book.  Will Jessica get back on the track or give up on her dreams? Will the students on the track team pull through and get the money? Will Jessica ever  run again? Read The Running Dream to take a look at Jessica’s thoughts on the possibilities on her running dream coming true.
