Running Dream The Running Dream
by Wendelin Van Draanen
The Running Dream is an amazing book. One reason I like this book is because I can relate to the main character, Jessica. Jessica loves to run and so do I. Another reason I love this book is because there is always an interesting climax going on. It is not one of those books that you have to break into. I would rate this book 5/5 stars.
