I've finally determined the date for our first meeting of the school year!!! YAY!!! We'll be meeting Saturday, September 24th, from 3:30 to 5:00. The meeting will be at Julia's house.
The book she's assigned is The Running Dream by Wendelin Van Draanen (which is quite fabulous, if I do say so myself). Sixteen-year-old Jessica lives to run but when a tragic accident results in her leg being amputated below the knee, her running dreams are shattered. During her recovery she gets to know Rosa—-a girl with cerebral palsy whom she had previously ignored. Rosa helps Jessica believe in a future with unexpected opportunities. With the support of her coach, friends, family and community, Jessica starts to wonder if it is possible not only to walk again, but to run.
I hope to see you all at our next meeting. Enjoy the book!
