"This is a splendid novel that I read in one sitting. . . . You will cheer when this kid embraces ‘Do your best' and shows it to be a ringing call to nothing less than Triumph. " - Gary Schmidt, Printz Honor winner and two-time Newbery Honor winner "Diana Harmon Asher tells an entertaining story about a boy picking his way through the potholes and pitfalls of puberty, with a little help from his friends. " - Richard Peck, Newbery Medal winner "Just read it! Diana Harmon Asher has written a witty, observant, and sensitive novel for kids, as well as a delight for the adults in their lives. " - Susan Isaacs, New York Times bestselling author If middle school were a race, Joseph Friedman wouldn't even be in last place - he'd be on the sidelines. With an overactive mind and phobias of everything from hard-boiled eggs to gargoyles, he struggles to understand his classes, let alone his fellow classmates. So he spends most of his time avoiding school bully Charlie Kastner and hiding out in the Resource Room, a safe place for misfit kids like him. But then, on the first day of seventh grade, two important things happen. First, his Resource Room teacher encourages (i. e. , practically forces) him to join the school track team, and second, he meets Heather, a crazy-fast runner who isn't going to be pushed around by Charlie Kastner or anybody else. With a new friend and a new team, Joseph finds himself off the sidelines and in the race (quite literally) for the first time. Is he a good runner? Well, no, he's terrible. But the funny thing about running is, once you're in the race, anything can happen.

Diana Asher is the mother of three sons and is deeply immersed in reading and writing programs at the non-profit organization, Children's Village, and at Blythdale Children's Hospital, both in Westchester, New York. In her past life, Diana worked in the story department at Columbia Pictures, and in subsidiary rights at Doubleday. This is her debut novel.
