The Running Dream

A 2013 Beehive YA Fiction Nominee

Written by Wendelin Van Draanen

What would you do if the thing you enjoyed the most and helped you feel free was taken away from you? The protagonist in The Running Dream has the misfortune of finding out. In her journey from feeling extremely sorry for herself, she comes to learn a lot about herself and others around her. She learns to look past what people seem to be and see what and who they really are. The Running Dream isn’t a book full of vampires, werewolves, or magical beings. It is simply a magical book of the heart.
