Description-

  • With no money for college, the possibility of a track scholarship is the one hope on the horizon for 17-year old Jimmy Bodine. All he wants is to run – away from the lies at home and towards his only chance of a life. When his manipulative stepmother sets him up to take the fall for a theft he did not commit, and his unyielding father does not believe him, Jimmy begins a search to clear his name. He discovers pieces of the past that could endanger more than just his future.

Excerpts-

  • From The Text

    Jimmy ran down the back stretch of his high school track in his own world. He had the track to himself early in the morning, nothing but the sound of his sneakers and his breathing. His arms, legs and heart all worked together like a good rock band, everybody playing their part, the sound blending together into something new, something that has that hit feeling, that you know is going to work. He loved this feeling. It was freedom, freedom from everything at home, at school, in his brain, all the things he hadn't done right and wasn't sure he'd ever get a chance to do at all. All of it was gone, left in the dust like everybody who ever tried to race him. He was state champion last year and he was hell bent on breaking his own record this year. Nothing was going to stop him.

    He imagined how he'd look on ESPN as he took the final turn, the orange track beneath him, white lines marking out his territory, flags flying, those Olympic rings waving him on, photographers kneeling down to get the right angle.

    But it wasn't ESPN watching him; a woman in a red sports car was. She licked her lips as she lifted a pair of mini binoculars to her dark eyes and got a fix on Jimmy. She rolled the tip of her finger across the focus dial and held it there, her red nail polish glinting in the sun.

    Jimmy crossed the line, clicked his stopwatch, and slowed down. He checked the time and smiled his signature wicked grin. Happy, he walked around to cool down, flapping his faded Lynyrd Skynyrd t-shirt in the summer heat, enjoying the moment.

    A car horn beeped repeatedly, interrupting his thoughts. Then he saw his stepmother, Linda, get out of her car and approach the chain link fence. She picked her way through the wet morning grass in her high-heel sandals to wave at him and call him over.

    Jimmy ignored her.

    "Jimmy!" She yelled, angry.

    He strolled over, checking his stopwatch again, the enjoyment fading.

    "What," Jimmy said. It wasn't a question.

    "Your father wants to see you," she said.

    "I'm training," Jimmy said. "I'll be home in an hour."

    "No," she said. "Now."
