In eighth grade Kevin Schuler is a popular kid with a decent, if not stellar, record on the track. Yet after fate takes him off a bus that crashes and kills his fellow students, including his girlfriend, Kevin inexplicably becomes a track phenomenon. Separated from his memory and distanced from his own life, he effortlessly smashes records and gains national attention, until he finds that he can no more remain apart from himself than he can from the ground beneath his feet.

Chicago Sun-Times "This story will leave you cheering." Seventeen "Entertaining, engaging, and finally, moving." James Hynes, author of The Lecturer's Tale "Subtle.[with] a deep vein of dark humor that keeps the reader a bit off-kilter.Quirky dialogue and laugh-out-loud absurdities abound and offset the book's somber story in a way that is as engaging as it is unpredictable."
