When 11-year-old Julie Welsh is diagnosed with juvenile arthritis, she details her struggle with her 89-year-old pen pal in Kansas, Mrs. Kaplan. Julie hates being different, but when her school sponsors a five-mile charity run, Julie's younger brother, Frankie, talks her into entering. Using crutches, Julie's progress in the race is slow, but she learns that sometimes winners finish last.

Annotation Julie, who suffers from juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, is encouraged by her 89-year-old pen pal to run for her school's student council and to participate in the annual talent show.
Editors Note Oh, BRRRRROTHER! Hi. I'm Julie Welsh. My nine-year-old brother is always cooking up schemes...and I get blamed. Because I'm older. Eleven, to be exact. But Frankie has his good points too, as I told Mrs. Kaplan, my 89-year-ald pen pal, who lives in Kansas. I write Mrs. Kaplan about everything. Even my secrets. She was the first one I told about my juvenile arthritis. Mrs. Kaplan understands everything. She has arthritis too. I was feeling tired and achy all the time, and discouraged. Then Mrs. Kaplan gave me ideas about running for student council, and though I could barely lift my legs, Frankie made me want to compete in a fun run. Just when I thought my life was a permanent time-out, you'll never believe what happened....
Editors Note 2 In letters to an elderly pen pal, eleven-year-old Julie describes how her mischievous younger brother is always getting her in trouble, how she is dealing with painful juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, and how she struggles to finish a fund-raising race on crutches.In letters to an elderly pen pal, eleven-year-old Julie describes how her mischievous younger brother is always getting her in trouble, and how she is dealing with painful juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.
