Descrição

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 best-selling and award-winning Track series from Jason Reynolds.

Ghost. Patina. Sunny. Lu. Four kids from wildly different backgrounds with personalities that are explosive when they clash. But they are also four kids chosen for an elite middle-school track team — a team that could qualify them for the Junior Olympics if they can get their acts together. They all have a lot to lose, but they also have a lot to prove, not only to each other but to themselves.

Lu is your quintessential pretty boy athlete, complete with fancy cleats, sunglasses, and a lot of attitude. The kind of guy you either hero-worship or want to punch. He runs the most loved race — the 400 meter dash — and is crazy talented. He should be — he’s been running track since he was small; because he’s albino his parents got him involved in sports to help with his confidence. But it sort of backfired — now Lu has confidence to spare, and the swagger hasn’t earned him any friends. As in none. Plus, his dad, who also shares his son’s penchant for being flashy, has gotten caught up in some type of illegal activity.

The Newbies on the team (Ghost, Patina, and Sunny) don’t put up with Lu’s shining around, but they also don’t avoid him like everyone else does. They call him out on his BS but include him in the horseplay. Will they be the first kids to crack through his armor and see more to him than the cloak of peacock that hides his lack of color?

  • (5/5)
    Great good I love it so much I do yes
  • (5/5)
    I’m so sad, I don’t want this to be the last book in the Track series. However, I’m grateful for having known these characters and been blessed to share their lives in these stories. Jason Reynold’s writing is the BEST! He is the master of dialogue, painting his characters with real voices, vocabularies, and thoughts. The power and variety of similes, metaphors, and onomatopoeia he uses are delightfully original and a source of awe for this wannabe writer. My first book read of Jason’s was Long Way Down , followed by The Boy in the Black Suit, and then his book, For Every One, jump started my writing again on the morning I finished that book.
    His collaboration with Guy Lockhart, in voicing the audiobooks lifts the words off the page and into the heart of the listener. So, get busy and find Jason’s books and share them with everyone you know who has eyes, ears, and a heart of good writing and great characters. Now, I’m off to read or listen to the rest of Jason’s books.
