The Running Dream

The Running Dream - Wendelin Van Draanen

Nice and enjoyable book that isn't preachy or depressing despite being about handicaps.  Jessica is a teenager who has lost her leg in a vehicle accident and must learn to live with this condition when the biggest part of her life has been as a runner.  She probably gets through her trials easier than I suspect most anyone would, but it doesn't matter that much. It was a decent story anyway, and the focus on her friend Rosa at the end was great.  Rosa has cerebral palsy and she has some things to teach Jessica
