9780007336920: The Runner (Tillerman Series)

The fourth book in Cynthia Voigt's acclaimed Tillerman Series, where 1960s Vietnam beckons Bullet Tillerman. Bullet Tillerman is a loner, with little interest in anyone or anything except running. But this is the 1960s, and with racial war at home and the Vietman War abroad, Bullet's beliefs have to change. A sad, beautiful story about war, racism and tragedy, building on characters already loved and admired from the first book in the Tillerman series, Homecoming.

From the Inside Flap:

It was the 1960s, the time of the Vietnam War. "Bullet" Tillerman, the school track star, had to decide if he would go to fight or stay on the family farm. Bullet's father, who had already driven Bullet's older brother and sister out of the house, made impossible demands on him. And his mother seemed to have lost the will to resist the old man. Meanwhile, at school, a black student joined the track team, forcing Bullet to question his own prejudices. But nothing would keep him from running. Nothing.

About the Author:

Cynthia Voigt, winner of the Newbery Medal, was born in Boston in 1942. For a number of years she taught English and Classics. She is married with one daughter and one son.
