Running Girl : The Diary of Ebonee Rose
It is two weeks before the All-City Track Meet, and eleven-year-old Ebonee Rose is entered in four events. She puts in long hours of practice and collects her thoughts, dreams, and fears within the pages of her diary while counting the days until the meet. Ebonee Rose is nervous, but she remembers the words and deeds of her heroes, great women runners-Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Florence Griffith Joyner, Wilma Rudolph, and others. As the day of the meet nears, Ebonee Rose faces her worries and discovers the rewards of friendship.
