Camp Gold: Running Stars by Christine Ohuruogu

Maxine is crazy about sports! She's thrilled to be going to Camp Gold, an elite sports summer camp. She's nervous too - will she be good enough? At the camp she meets good friends, cute boys and, best of all, she discovers her hidden talent - running. Soon she's training for the Nationals, which will be watched by Olympic champions. It's tough but it'll be worth it if she wins. Then the pranks start and her things go missing...Someone is out to sabotage her chance of winning. Can she stop them before it's too late?


An interesting and readable look at the opportunities sport offers Parents in Touch OLYMPIC gold medalist Christine Ohuruogu has joined up with writer Paul May to write a fiction for readers aged nine upwards. It tells the tale of Maxine who is crazy about sport and thrilled to be going to Camp Gold. She makes good friends and cute boys and discovers her hidden talent of running. Soon she is training for the Nationals and is watched by Olympic champions, but then as she prepares for a tough battle ahead, she becomes the victim of pranks and sabotage. Burnley Express [My daughter] was hooked by the excitement and suspense of the story, and I think she just genuinely liked it because it was about sports and something quite 'concrete' - a nice change from some of the more abstract books she reads about magical realms, etc Childtastic Reviews Blog
