The Running DreamHot
From the moment I picked up the novel, I could not put it down. Readers will be drawn in by Jessica's honesty. Although she truly wants to believe she will run again, she has her doubts. She questions her ability, how other people see her, even how she views herself. Her view of the world begins to change as she realizes sometimes there is more to a person than what you see on the surface.
I highly recommend this book to any reader. It will leave you with a true sense of what really matters in life.
Honest and realistic characters.
A book you can't put down.
I absolutely love the effort Wendelin Van Draanen puts into her books. All of the interviewing to truly understand a person more than the just their physical loss of their leg.
I recommend this to anyone who wants to read a heartwarming story about a high school amputee.
I absolutely recommend this book, it was inspiring and the writing style was amazing.
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.
