This was one of the weaker entries, focusing on poor Roger with a crush on rich Lila. He catches her eye when he wins a qualifying track race. Unfortunately, his job will prevent him from participating in the *big* race. Will he tell Lila he so poor that he has to work to help his parents pay the rent? Will Lila care? Will he be able to run the race? Will he win? Will that be enough for Lila? SVH lovers probably can answer these questions without actually reading the book, although my son was very careful not to give away the big reveal when talking about future entries in the series.
