Summary
A New York Times Notable Children's Book

A newbie to the track team, Patina must learn to rely on her teammates as she tries to outrun her personal demons in this follow-up to the National Book Award finalist Ghost by New York Times bestselling author Jason Reynolds.

Ghost. Lu. Patina. Sunny. Four kids from wildly different backgrounds with personalities that are explosive when they clash. But they are also four kids chosen for an elite middle school track team--a team that could qualify them for the Junior Olympics if they can get their acts together. They all have a lot to lose, but they also have a lot to prove, not only to each other, but to themselves.

Patina, or Patty, runs like a flash. She runs for many reasons--to escape the taunts from the kids at the fancy-schmancy new school she's been sent to since she and her little sister had to stop living with their mom. She runs from the reason WHY she's not able to live with her "real" mom any more: her mom has The Sugar, and Patty is terrified that the disease that took her mom's legs will one day take her away forever. So Patty's also running for her mom, who can't. But can you ever really run away from any of this? As the stress builds up, it's building up a pretty bad attitude as well. Coach won't tolerate bad attitude. No day, no way. And now he wants Patty to run relay...where you have to depend on other people? How's she going to do THAT?
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* When Patina Patty Jones, the fastest girl on the Defenders track team, comes in second place in a race a fact she finds unacceptable her rage is so intense that she mentally checks out. In an effort to make her into a team player, Coach assigns her to the 4x800 relay race and makes the relay team do hokey things like waltz in practice to learn each others' rhythms. Pfft. Meanwhile, Patty feels completely out of place at her rich-girl academy. And then there's the really hard stuff. Like how her father died, how her mother got the sugar (diabetes) and it took her legs, and now Patty and her little sister live with their aunt Emily and uncle Tony. Reynolds' again displays his knack for capturing authentic voice in both Patty's inner monologues and the spoken dialogue. The plot races as fast as the track runners in it, and without ever feeling like a book about issues it deftly tackles topics like isolation, diverse family makeup, living with illness, losing a parent, transcending socioeconomic and racial barriers, and perhaps best of all what it's like for a tween to love their little sister more than all the cupcakes in the world. The second entry in the four-book Track series, this serves as a complete, complex, and sparkling stand-alone novel. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Ghost (2016), the semiprequel, was a National Book Award finalist, and this ought to perpetuate Reynolds' hot streak.--Worthington, Becca Copyright 2017 Booklist"
