Abstract:
Patina, "Patty" Jones is the fastest girl on the Defenders track team. A newbie to the track team, Patty must learn to rely on her family and teammates as she tries to outrun her problems. She runs to show the kids that taunt her at her fancy new school that she's going to be someone some day. She runs for her fellow newbie teammates to make them proud. She runs to show her little sister Maddy how to be strong and brave. And she runs for her mother, who can never run again. Patty is out to prove herself, but when the pressure becomes too much, can she outdistance it? This is the second book in the Track series about a fiery group of kids who have a shot at the Junior Olympics, but have a lot to prove first- to one another, and to themselves. -- Publisher description.
