You can run from something, or toward somethingbut can you do both at the same time? Book four in the Newbery-winning cycle from Cynthia Voigt is repackaged with a fresh new look.
Bullet Tillerman runs. He runs to escape the criticism of his harsh, unforgiving father. He runs to numb the pain of his mothers inability to express her love. He is the star of the school track team, but he isnt a team man and doesnt want to be. Bullet runs for himself. So Bullet doesnt understand why hes been asked to train a new team member, and hes not looking forward to the task. But in coaching Tamer Shipp, Bullet learns some things about himselfwho he is, and who he can perhaps become.
