From the Publisher:
You can run from something, or toward something?but can you do both at the same time? Book four in the Newbery-winning cycle from Cynthia Voigt is repackaged with a fresh new look.Bullet Tillerman runs. He runs to escape the criticism of his harsh, unforgiving father. He runs to numb the pain of his mother's inability to express her love. He is the star of the school track team, but he isn't a team man and doesn't want to be. Bullet runs for himself.

     So Bullet doesn't understand why he's been asked to train a new team member, and he's not looking forward to the task. But in coaching Tamer Shipp, Bullet learns some things about himself?who he is, and who he can perhaps become.

Author Bio
Cynthia Voigt
Cynthia Voigt decided in the ninth grade that she wanted to become a writer. She attended Smith College, and after graduation moved to New York where she worked for an advertising agency. After marrying her first husband in 1964, she moved with him to New Mexico where she became a teacher. The couple had one daughter and divorced in 1972. Voigt and her daughter moved to Maryland, where she continued to work as a teacher. It was while searching for books to share with her class of fifth graders that Voigt began to get ideas for young adult and juvenile books that she could write herself. Her first book, HOMECOMING, was published in 1981. The sequel to that book, DICEY'S SONG, won the Newbery Medal in 1983 and, the following year, A SOLITARY BLUE--a companion piece to DICEY'S SONG--was named a Newbery Honor Book.
