Just Run

by Deb Loughead


Fourteen-year-old Daisy Howson is a take-charge kind of girl, maybe even something of a control freak. She means well--she just wants everything to run smoothly, especially on her relay team. But when someone tries to sabotage the boys' relay team Daisy suspects her own team may be involved. Can she sort it all out and fix everything up again before the city championship meet? [Fry reading level - 3.6

Editorial Reviews

"...the book will appeal to a broad audience, and readers who are athletic, like Daisy, will find it very easy to identify with her.

— CM: Canadian Review of Materials

Daisy's voice and perceptions ring true, and the story, hinging on her choices, is involving. A solid choice for reluctant readers and track fans.

— Booklist Online (US)

"This book has an engaging and interesting story...The situations that Daisy finds herself in, at home and at school, are handled (or blown out of proportion) in a manner that is consistent with Daisy's age. All in all, this book is a solid addition to this series."
