Run For It  Jan 21, 2005

Have you ever done something that you really think you can't do but you have to do it to save a special family member? If yes, then you're like Theo, a videogame addicted boy who hates sports, the main character in Run For It, a great book by Matt Christopher, author of many other sports books for kids.

In Run For It, Theo decides to run in a five kilometer race to help the cancer foundation. Theo's favorite aunt has cancer and he really wants to help his aunt. So Theo sets out on training everyday, and soon, he changes from a fat kid to an athletic kid who loves sports-but will Theo be able to help his aunt and make it, running five kilometers? It's your duty to read Run For It and find out!

Personally, I think this book is a fantastic read for kids of all ages. I really liked it and if you read it, I hope you do too!
