Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Faced with a boring summer, Summer is ecstatic when she meets Dave at a bingo parlor. The snake in the grass is Ann, who schemes to take him away and who corners Summer into lying about her athletic prowess. Trapped, she has to train for a 10K race. Not unexpectedly, she comes to love running for its own sake, wins the race, and regains Dave from Ann's clutches. Nothing extra here, just the standard wish fulfillment, but the eccentric Grandpa is fun, and the running angle isn't bad.

From Booklist

Gr. 7^-9. A popular adult romance novelist tries her hand at writing for young adults. In this undemanding but engaging result, Summer falls in love with a boy she meets at a church hall where her grandfather plays bingo. Garwood uses lots of dialogue to keep things moving as the conflict develops. When David meets an attractive new girl, Summer becomes insecure and invents a lie about being a long-distance runner. Predictably, the lie leads to trouble: David registers himself and Summer for a six-mile charity race. The plot, which is filled with typical teenage circumstances, verges on the preposterous, but it is saved by Garwood's portrayal of the characters' caring relationships and the fact that she doesn't let Summer take the easy way out.
