Jessica Carlisle, a junior in high school, loves to run. But when a tragic bus accident takes place just after she beats the league record, Jessica thinks she will never run again. With the help of good friends, a good family, a good coach, and good doctors, Jessica starts to see some hope. When her story goes viral, her friends and teammates raise enough money to get Jessica back on the track. And with a ten mile race coming up, Jessica wants to take a new friend with her. This is a story about recovery, hope, and friends that truly care.
I loved this book because it just pulled me right in. I read the book in one day and could not put it down. I highly recommend it. You won’t want to put it down either!
