This story of a high school track star coping with leg amputation includes a nice mix of teenage angst and lighthearted moments that ultimately make for a feel-good story. With a topic like this, various emotional and psychological aspects could have been given more depth and further explored, but Wendelin Van Draanen does a nice job of streamlining to keep the story moving, and Laura Flanagan is a supremely engaging reader who fully embodies these characters in her narration.
