Publisher's Summary

Selected as one of the Young Adult Library Services Association's 2019 Top 10 Amazing Audiobooks for Young Adults!

Lu must learn to leave his ego on the sidelines if he wants to finally connect with others in the climax to the New York Times best-selling and award-winning Track series from Jason Reynolds.

Ghost. Patina. Sunny. Lu. Four kids from wildly different backgrounds with personalities that are explosive when they clash. But they are also four kids chosen for an elite middle-school track team - a team that could qualify them for the Junior Olympics if they can get their acts together. They all have a lot to lose, but they also have a lot to prove, not only to each other but to themselves.

Lu is your quintessential pretty boy athlete, complete with fancy cleats, sunglasses, and a lot of attitude. The kind of guy you either hero-worship or want to punch. He runs the most loved race - the 400 meter dash - and is crazy talented. He should be - he’s been running track since he was small; because he’s albino his parents got him involved in sports to help with his confidence. But it sort of backfired - now Lu has confidence to spare, and the swagger hasn’t earned him any friends. As in none. Plus, his dad, who also shares his son’s penchant for being flashy, has gotten caught up in some type of illegal activity. 

The Newbies on the team (Ghost, Patina, and Sunny) don’t put up with Lu’s shining around, but they also don’t avoid him like everyone else does. They call him out on his BS but include him in the horseplay. Will they be the first kids to crack through his armor and see more to him than the cloak of peacock that hides his lack of color?

Dear Jason Reynolds

One of the best books I’ve ever read Dear Jason, I’m a big fan of your series Track. I love the humor, the honesty, the love, and most of all the running. I love it because I’m a runner to! But I run cross country. Thanks! Love, Your fan!

Kids loved it as much as we did

This was a real joy to listen to. We listened to all four in the series and couldn’t wait to go for another family drive just to keep up with everyone. This is coming from two track heads!!!

Phonemonal End to a GREAT Series!

Jason Reynolds and Guy Lockard have done it again. I LOVE the TRACK series and am sad to see it come to an end. I feel so bonded to and connected with these characters. I especially LOVED how this book tied everything together. Can't wait for my next Jason Reynolds download!

Perfect end to perfect series

I love this series. Firstly , because it’s such a wonderfully entertaining read. Secondly , because , as a librarian, kids will read and love to read this series. Seriously, they’ll read book after book and beg for more. I highly recommend this series.

“Lightening Lu”

Lu was the icing on the cake. Although I thoroughly enjoyed them all, Ghost, Patina, Sunny, Lu’s story was just outstanding. Jason Reynolds really kicked literary butt with this series. I’ve been passing the books out left and right to my students.
