Raymond's Run is a really fantastic story. The author, Toni Cade Bambara is a great author who was trying to entertain the reader, and teach him/her at the same time.
I really liked the story a lot, but the author mentioned much more details and events. Till I was like dreaming to finish the story as soon as possible!!!

A touching story that touches on good sportsmanship and how it relates to winning & losing and what really is winning?
Squeaky is a great runner who can focus and train regardless of who teases her. She’s confident in herself… but she starts to think about her friend, non-friends and her older handicapped brother one day as she trains for an upcoming local race and realizes a few things about life.
