In this entry in the long running series, young readers learn about Terry Fox, a famous Canadian. This is a story that shows how a life can be redefined and much can be achieved, even after a difficult setback. Terry was not expecting the turn that his life took but he (literally) ran with it. This is an inspiring entry in the series.
The author does a good job of explaining what cancer is, albeit briefly. She does this without making the story too scary. Ms. Sanchez Vegara also acknowledges Terry’s death so be ready to discuss this. She goes on to note the impact that Terry has had as others now run for his cause.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Quarto Publishing Group for this title. All opinions are my own.
