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 best-selling 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.

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?

A moving countryside tale about the power of friendship and creativity from the nation's favourite children's author.

Bonny has always wanted to be a top cyclist, maybe even a future Olympic champion like her hero, Laura Trott. When she gets a new racing bike for her birthday, she heads out into the Dales like always, speeding along. But when she's distracted by some cheeky horses, she comes off her bike and discovers that the horses belong to a quiet woman who has an amazing collection of statues on her lawn - a buffalo, a horse lying down, even a man running. Gradually, Bonny gets to know Lizzie and forms a special bond with her horse, Merry, when she is given a job at Lizzie's farm. Bonny is even introduced to a life-sized sculpture of Merry in Lizzie's studio and is allowed to pose as its rider, a completely magical experience. She learns from Lizzie that a true gift is never to be wasted, and if you "breath the world in deep", you can do anything.
