This track series by Jason Reynolds is full of real life moments in the characters he portrays. You feel the characters grow under the track coaches honest, straight-forward feedback and the connections within the team.
Gave this as a gift to a newly 13 year-old boy after having read the books on my own - as everything Jason Reynolds deserves a read. He absolutely loved the books and his mother couldn't get him to put them down(!). The packaging for this set looks great on any desk or shelf. An excellent gift idea for girls or boys, especially if they're into track and field.
