Sam lives for cycling and thinks he has a chance of being a world-class racer. His attitude and lack of discipline always seem to get in the way, though, resulting in being kicked off his cycling team. He meets Viktor, an aging Olympic cycling champion who agrees to train him as well as giving him a job as a bike courier. When Viktor gives him special pickups to make, in unmarked packages from shady characters, Sam realizes there may be something illegal going on. What choices will he make? A somewhat similar situation arises in Carl Deuker's Runner. The low reading level will appeal to struggling teen readers but also to those reading at grade level who want a quick, action-packed story.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
