The star runner on her team, Gianna Zales can cross any finish line—no problem. But real-life problems prove to be bigger hurdles than any she meets on the track. - Blurb from book
What I enjoyed most about this book was the family dynamics, from the mother who hides her emotions to the six-year old boy who has the makings of a great photographer to the father who runs a funeral home and drives Gianna around in a hearse. The family is real, with real problems to real joys and I felt like I was lucky to see a glimpse into their lives andtraditions.
I liked the friendship between Gianna and Zig. I would have liked to see more awkward moments between them. Gianna is supposed to be developing feelings for Zig and I would have liked to see that developed more.
Then on the other side of the spectrum was the animosity between Gianna and Bianca. I felt Bianca was developed well as the mean girl. There were times that I really disliked her and wanted her to get what was coming to her. What comes around goes around, right?
I also liked the tree project and how is was used as a guide posts throughout the story. I saw a title as “The Brilliant Fall” and I though something bad was going to happen, when in all actuality, it’s about the season and how great it turned out to be.
I definitely recommend this books a light read and had fun turning the pages to see what kind of trouble little miss Gianna would get herself into.
