Run

Back Cover Blurb: 

When Supermom joins Dad on his latest project, Morgan is left with her aunt. Instead of dating the cute boy from her high school track team, Morgan will spend the summer in a small town near Kanab, Utah, five hours from home and all of her friends. Her plan is to keep a sane distance between herself and her aunt's six boys. What Morgan does not expect is being attracted to the neighbor kid who hangs out with her cousins. How can she like two guys at the same time? Just when her life could not get more messed up, Morgan stumbles across an abandoned house and learns she lived there when she was small. The house and its secrets haunt her . . . it turns out she has been dreaming about the place for years. All she wants is to hold onto what she loves. But as the summer passes, she wonders if she is going to lose everything.

My Take:

Since this is my own book, I'm in a unique position to give a few extra details. This book is a great read for kids 12 and up. (I've had a few younger kids read it as well. They enjoyed it but some aspects were over their heads.) Morgan is exploring the question of heavenly guidance in her life and what happens when people receive that guidance but don't follow it. She is also trying to understand the role her family, including her extended family, plays in her life. A main theme of the book is her navigating her first experiences with dating and boys. Morgan is sixteen years old in this book.
