Staff Reviews


We follow Lu in the last book of the Track series, as his changes include not being a full-time runner but is also doing the hurdles (which, of course, is a metaphor for his life), learning about his father’s past, his mother’s surprise pregnancy, overcoming bullies and fears he has. Not to mention the day-to-day issues of being an albino. Yet, Lu, while having self-confidence issues, also has a good hold on who he is. That is, until he starts to have the changes occur and he redefines himself. — Jeanette

Description


"

Lu must learn to leave his ego on the sidelines if he wants to finally connect with others in the climax to the New York Times bestselling and award-winning Track series from Jason Reynolds.


Lu was born to be cocaptain of the Defenders. Well, actually, he was born albino, but that's got nothing to do with being a track star. Lu has swagger, plus the talent to back it up, and with all that--not to mention the gold chains and diamond earrings--no one's gonna outshine him.


Lu knows he can lead Ghost, Patina, Sunny, and the team to victory at the championships, but it might not be as easy as it seems. Suddenly, there are hurdles in Lu's way--literally and not-so-literally--and Lu needs to figure out, fast, what winning the gold really means.


Expect the unexpected in this final event in Jason Reynold's award-winning and bestselling Track series."
