In Running for Dave, a school track star gets cancer and the rest of the team must find the strength to carry on in Dave’s memory. Much more than a story about sports. “Running for Dave is a tender story of friendship and loyalty. It would make a valuable addition to a school library, classroom novel set or a teen’s personal library.”-Resource Links
