The Thursday Thirteen: THE RUNNING DREAM by Wendelin Van Draanen

Bienvenidos to the Thursday Thirteen! Where we review books in 13 words or less. Anyone can play, punctuation does not count towards word limit, but emoticons do :) That's 1. If you'd like to be featured here, email me at shielacblank(at)aol(dot)com and I'll get it posted.

Today I'm reviewing Wendelin Van Draanen's 2011 YA novel THE RUNNING DREAM.

Oh, and I've added another rule - I told you we'd evolve them as we went along ;) - made up words count. Like this:

Track star loses leg, dreams of competing. Learns impossible means try harder. Inspireading!

There's your lucky thirteen. Until next week...

Happy reading and ¡Buen Provecho!
