The characters were people I would love to meet. Even the rebellious teenager. She grows on you!
Parts of the book were sad. One of the main characters had to give up her dream of running in the Olympics because of a medical problem but she overcame that and found a new (better!) dream.
The rebellious teenager grows up and ends being a great runner herself!
This is a great story that shows how dreams can change and grow even bigger and better. It would be a great book to curl up with on a dreary fall day.
About the book :
A Personal Drama of Shattered Dreams and Second Chances
A talented runner fully committed to Olympic dreams, Sabrina Rice’s future was shattered by a devastating diagnosis. One forfeited scholarship and several years later, she has new goals and dreams that have nothing to do with running–something that’s become far too painful to think on.
Until the day she sees Brandy Philip running across the community college campus, easily outpacing security. Sabrina immediately recognizes world-class speed, and it’s all the more painful that it belongs to a teenage graffiti artist. When a chance encounter brings the two young women together, Sabrina becomes Brandy’s best hope for staying out of juvenile hall. Soon, Sabrina begins to feel an uncomfortable nudge that her new life is just about to be toppled…that God may be calling her to minister to this talented but troubled girl.
