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. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
