Read Patina (Track, #2) Online Free - Patina, or Patty, runs like a flash. She runs for many reasons—to escape the taunts from the kids at the fancy-schmancy new school she’s been sent to since she and her little sister had to stop living with their mom. She runs from the reason WHY she’s not able to live with her “real” mom any more: her mom has The Sugar, and Patty is terrified that the disease that took her mom’s legs will one day take her away forever. So Patty’s also running for her mom, who can’t. But can you ever really run away from any of this? As the stress builds up, it’s building up a pretty bad attitude as well. Coach won’t tolerate bad attitude. No day, no way. And now he wants Patty to run relay…where you have to depend on other people? How’s she going to do THAT?

Even better than Ghost and I loved Ghost. I'm already exciting about the next book in the series. Sunny, perhaps?

You cannot be a children’s librarian or an adult children’s book reviewer if you do not constantly remind yourself that you have to read outside your comfort zone on a regular basis. Our current National Ambassador of Young People’s Literature, Gene Luen Yang, put this far more eloquently when he...

A perfectly written follow up to Reynolds’ middle grade smash hit GHOST, this title is narrated by Patina, another member of the Defenders Track team. Thank you to Atheneum/Simon Kids for providing me with a review copy of this book – all opinions are my own. I’ll start by saying to please read...

Another excellent book in the Track series -- equal to or exceeding the first. I loved having a female main character, and such a strong girl she has had to become! Though she is well-cared-for by her aunt and uncle, she is always taking care of her younger sister, Maddy, and always aware of her...

Patina is a story of survival. Of keeping on. Family. Connections. Amassing it all around you. Red beads in a multitude of braids. Finger nails painted in a hero’s style. The security in same old, same old turkey wings. Daily car rides filled with chitter chatter. Sunday visits. Patina is a siste...

My blog review: A year ago I received a box of ARCs from Simon & Schuster and, poking around, came across Jason Reynolds' Ghost. While I'd heard a great deal about wunderkind Reynolds and read with respect some of his YA work, that he had a middle grade book coming out was a complete surprise...

Cannot wait to share this with kids. Reynolds' writing explodes during race scenes. And Patty's character is richly drawn. She carries such a load, so much responsibility, taking care of her little sister, caring for her mom, navigating school scene that isn't comfortable or rooted in her own cul...

Advanced reading courtesy of Edelweiss. Jason Reynolds is a master at getting a character's voice to climb into your head and whisper-read the book with you. I thought I loved Ghost and his foibles. No. Patina is my girl. Don't let her tough exterior fool you. Nope. Underneath, you'll find a seco...
