Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Coping with loss and the meaning of friendship" Jess is a natural born runner, and when she_s chosen for the city track team, she is thrilled. True to form, however, her artist mom doesn_t share her excitement. She doesn_t even understand her interest in track and field! Instead, she signs Jess up for a painting course. Jess loves her mom, but why must they always butt heads? Determined to be independent, all of their conflicts seem to blow up in her face when her mother suddenly becomes ill. Overcome by anger, and then denial, Jess attempts to do it alone, refusing to accept help or sympathy from even her closest friends. "If she keeps on running like this, maybe Jess can avoid feeling anything at all." Sheryl McFarlane perfectly captures the humor, anger and sadness of a family dealing with grief in this sensitive portrayal of a teenage girl coping with loss and learning about the value of true friendship.
