Praise

“I read The Running Dream on my way to the World Championships. I nearly missed my flight for reading it and inhaled it before I touched down. It’s a truly touching story that feels very real.”–Katrin Green, Paralympic Gold Medalist

“This heart-touching story is a helpful reminder that we must appreciate each day and each blessing. When I go around “Rigor Mortis Bend” and think of Jessica, my legs do not feel nearly as tired anymore.”–Jordan Hasay, four-time USA Track & Field Jr. Women’s Champion

“Van Draanen’s extensive research into both running and amputees pays dividends–readers will truly feel what’s it like to walk (or run) a mile (or 10) in Jessica’s shoes.”–Booklist

“Inspirational. The pace of Van Draanen’s prose matches Jessica’s at her swiftest. Readers will zoom through the book just as Jessica blazes around the track. A lively and lovely story.”–Kirkus Reviews

“Van Draanen delivers an abundance of interesting medical detail and emotional authenticity in this accessible and inspirational novel.”–The Horn Book Magazine
