WINNER OF PRESTIGIOUS SILVER MEDAL IN 2018 INTERNATIONAL READERS FAVORITE NOVEL COMPETITION!
As they grow up, Ron, Dovey, and Emil face great danger in a thrilling tale of grit, pluck, love, and glory to get Ron to his distance running, Olympic marathon dream.
Amazon Review: "If you’ve seen the movie “Rocky”, you’ll remember the scene where Rocky runs through the city with all the neighborhood’s kids cheering and running with him. That’s how you feel when reading this novel, like those kids cheering for the champion, in this case Ronnie, an underdog who struggles and finds his place in the world in a very personal and heartwarming way."
The world contrives against a boy named Ron Campbell. His legs are mangled in a wreck and paralyzed. The people he loves die. His remaining relatives hate him.
Only his indomitable spirit sustains him – he will attempt every obstacle, face every danger, and answer every challenge to pursue his impossible dream of Olympic marathon champion. But nothing can prepare him for what awaits.
An epic journey of endurance lays ahead where he will learn that a true friend, whether animal or human, is the real prize of the world, and the mystical power of the spirit can work miracles.
