From the publisher:
It's not the taking part, it's the winning that counts for Patina!
Patty, as she's known to her friends and family, has lost a lot in her life - her dad died when she was young, her mum has lost her legs and now she has to live with her uncle and his wife. On top of that Patty has to go to the poshest school that ever existed. Now her running team has become a relay team and independent "I can do everything by myself" Patty has to work with her team mates to win.
READ THE RUN SERIES:

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 running 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 and a lot to prove. Not only to each other, but to themselves.
