My review of this book was that it was excellent. I had a great time reading it. I've read it more than 10 times and I still enjoy Going the Distance. Going the distance is about a 12 year old girl that has to keep moving. Her parents are artists and one of her mother's paintings gets selected to tour the galleries of Europe. The girl gets left with her grandmother in Lake Shore Illinois. She struggles with moving, and wanting to cut her hair. She loves swimming and that's one of the focus points of the book. I seriously recomend this book. I study books, looking for ideas and often I'm lucky if I get over 7, this book gave me more. I'm an author that writes realistic and historical fiction mostly but I do write a bit of fantasy. This book I enjoyed a lot and defenitly benifited me.Was this review helpful?
