Synopsis

Running on a Patchwork of Earth by Jonny Zucker

AJ is one of the best runners in his school - which is one of the best athletics training grounds in the world. He's devastated when his parents suddenly move him to cold, wet London, and he finds himself facing a very alien life, and hostility from the school bully. When the bully's father, a washed-up drinker who used to be a runner, takes an interest in AJ's training, it might make all the difference to AJ - or it might just make things a lot worse.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
