This book brought me to tears. Sonny's mother has died in childbirth with him and now his dad is a sad, emotionally frozen soul. However, Sonny does have lots of support from his relay racing team and his coach. Sonny is a star relay racer, just as his mother had been and it seems to be the only joy his father has as he watches Sonny excell.

But now, all of a sudden, Sonny can not race for one more day. He feels the urge to move and dance, as he realizes that even though he is good at racing, he hates it. Sonny knows that if he doesn't quit running, he will suffocate.

Sonny's journey of self- discovery is as exhilarating as it is heart breaking. A slim little novel with a powerful punch.

I'm guessing there's going to be a "Lu" book to finish off the series.
