A young friend of mine shared an experience she had last week and was still upset about. At her father’s urging she had tried out for spring track, a sport she had participated in last year and enjoyed.

For those of you who like to binge read AND save money I have combined the three books of the Upheaval Series—Slow Walk, Edge of Reality, and Solstice Moon—into a boxed e-set. You end up getting all three books for the price of two when purchased separately.
