Running Dream Book Review by 7th grader Michael K. June 4, 2019

Filed under: Realistic Fiction/ Contemporary Fiction,Student Book Reviews — oneilllibrary @ 2:00 pm

Running Dream, by Wendelin Van Draanen is a book about a girl, Jessica, who lost her legdownload-2 in a bus accident. Unfortunately she had to get it amputated. The one HUGE thing that she can’t do is run, and she absolutely loves to run. But she can’t anymore. Jessica needs to get a prosthetic leg. She wants to run again, but will she?

I rate this book a 5 out of 5. There is not one part of the book I disliked. I like this book because it was inspiring and it made me feel like nothing is impossible. I hope the author makes a sequel or a prequel to this book so I could be reading something over the summer.
