When seventeen-year-old track and field star Jesse Collins’ dreams of a full scholarship are shattered after the sudden death of her dad, she leaves home to work as a summer camp counselor to escape the small town nosy stares...and her own secret guilt.
After a mix-up at registration, she’s put in charge of a boys’ cabin, and the head counselor, Kirk, predicts she won’t last the first two weeks. In the midst of fending off four twelve-year-old boys who are hell-bent on mortifying her and a growing attraction to Kirk, Jesse finds the inspiration to run again from an unlikely source. But getting her old life back isn't that easy and soon Jesse will realize that a good pair of legs can take a girl far, but she'll never outrun the truth.

MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:
This novel was fascinating and a true page-turner all at the same time. This book had me hooked from the start!
My favorite character is Jesse because she is like me in many ways! My favorite part is when she is at camp because it all sounds so fun.
I recommend this book to readers that enjoy life situation books and people who love fascinating stories to cuddle up with.
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 12 and up.
