The Running Dream by Wendelin Van Draanen was an amazing book. Through the voice of the main character, Jessica, the author draws you into her thought and her feelings about losing her leg in an accident. As a runner I could relate to Jessica's passion for running and her disappoint and fear when she wakes up and learns she has lost one of her most valuable assets, her right leg.
The characters story is moving and inspirational. It made me appreciate what I have and my gift to run.
