When seventeen-year-old track and field star Jesse Collins’s dreams of a full scholarship are shattered after the sudden death of her dad, she leaves home to work as a summer camp counselor to escape the nosy stares in small town…and her own secret guilt. After a mix-up at registration, she’s put in charge of a boys’ cabin, and the head counsellor, Kirk, predicts she won’t last the first two weeks.
In the midst of fending off four twelve-year-old boys who are hell-bent on mortifying her and a growing attraction to Kirk, Jesse finds the inspiration to run again from an unlikely source. After all, a good pair of legs can take a girl far, but it’s facing the truth that makes all the difference.
Happy Wednesday, people! Today’s spotlight is on Girl on the Run by B.R. Myers. I’m not much of a runner myself…I try to huff and puff it out on the treadmill once a week in a self-imposed torture session, but I love the idea of a girl challenged to deal with a cabin full of boys. You just KNOW she’s going to kick some butt and probably learn a few things herself. Hey, there’s a giveaway too, so don’t forget to enter!
