Running on Empty
Grandad had the chance to run for his country in Canada. Then, he met Grandma, and settled for a life with her and his daughters. AJ is determined to follow Grandad’s example, but get to Canada. He runs up and down the stairs to practise, and wishes his uncle would let him into the Olympic Park where he works, If only Grandad was still there to encourage him. If only Grandad was still there to support his mother and father. This is a brilliant book. ‘Running on Empty‘ is sensitive, real, breathable and enveloping. I urge any reader, longing for a truly wonderful book, to turn to ‘Running on Empty‘.
