Reseña del editor:

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.

"This debut has an undeniably quirky charm."--Publishers Weekly

"A quietly remarkable achievement of pathos and wit."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"I love this book so much: It's haunting, gentle, riveting and full of beautiful, beautiful prose. A book like this is rare and precious, and it's on my special shelf of things I want to read over and over."--Thisbe Nissen, author of The Good People of New York

"Occasionally, a sleep of a book comes your way, a book whose author has not yet reached word-of-mouth status, and you think to yourself, 'My god, this is good.' Such a book is Life at These Speeds, a coming-of-age story unlike any in its genre. Written in edgy prose that perfectly mimics the sheer bravado of the young athlete at the center of the story, this novel of tragedy and redemption is infused with both physicality and grace."--Anita Shreve, author of The Pilot's Wife
