"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Grade 8-12 Despite having hair like Rapunzel's, Janis suffers crippling shyness when transplanted to a high school in Virginia. Quality time spent jogging with her widowed father qualifies her for the track team. Clown-hunk-star runner Ernie singles her out for coaching and affection. Janis opens the psychological doors that she has closed between herself and others until Ernie discloses that he's been drawing her out for her own good. The demoralized girl reciprocates when Ernie rebels at his future as a diabetic. Rue subtly integrates Christian values into an involving plot fraught with delightful teen hyperbole and angst. Southern turns of phrase set it apart from the cliched metropolitan formula. Only the oversize, square format will deter the intended audience. Patricia G. Harrington, Phoenix Public Library
