Just Run 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

Just Run is a great book because it is about relationships and  also makes you think about high school. Daisy is on the track team for her high school. Although she is dealing with the fact that her mom might be  getting a divorce, then her dad is playing online poker and her mom wants him to get a job. Daisy is the main  character of “Just Run”. The Central idea is friends and families getting along. This book is about running but it is  also about how she has to do everything for her friends and family, for example every day when she gets home from track practice she cooks for her and the family. Then when she sees her friends twin with her sisters boyfriend she tries to help her friend catch them . The best part  is when Daisy sees her friend and a member of the boys track team together. Then she and her crush start talking and they  become”Good” friends.I recommend this book to all teenagers who like sports and romance. This book gets a 4.5 stars from me.  I wIll leave you with this thought,  “You  can run but you can’t fix everything”.
