Description

"A quiet, lyrical story that sensitively explores issues of friendship and being true to oneself." — SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

When Mina, a self-professed "girlie-girl," discovers that she excels at track, her friends are as surprised as she is, especially competitive Ruth. Even more surprising is the way running seems to lift Mina up and make her happy. When Coach chooses her to run the fifty-meter against Ruth, Mina is torn. Should she slow down and let Ruth hold on to the spotlight? Or let herself soar? With subtlety and insight, Carolyn Marsden explores the delicate subject of competition between friends.

      • bioText:

        Carolyn Marsden was born in Mexico City of missionary parents. She spent six years in Mexico before moving to southern California. Her husband is from Thailand, and together they have two daughters. Because of these diverse influences in her life, Carolyn is drawn to writing about children outside mainstream American culture.


        The Gold-Threaded Dress, Carolyn's first published book, was favorably reviewed in the New York Times and received starred reviews from Booklist and Publishers Weekly. It made several state lists and was one of the Booklist Top Ten First Youth Novels of 2002.

        Silk Umbrellas, set in Thailand, which received starred reviews from Booklist and Publishers Weekly, was one of the Booklist Top Ten Art Novels of 2003, a Junior Library Guild Selection, and a nominee for the 2005 Texas Bluebonnet Award.

        Working in collaboration with people who grew up in fascinating cultures, Carolyn has gone on to write award-winning books set in Vietnam, Mexico, Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe), and Italy.

        Three Things You Might Not Know About Carolyn:

        1. If I weren't a writer, I would be a visual artist. I love to paint and collage!

        2. I also love to play with my two rescue dogs—a golden cocker spaniel and a terrier/whippet/beagle mutt.

        3. I also love to dance: ballet, hip hop, improv, and modern.
