Product description

Megan is a terrific 13-year-old athlete, a track and field all-rounder ready to make her mark at the 2012 Olympics. She can sprint, jump and hurdle like a pro, and her mother, Anne, is sure that Megan will soon be ready for the ultimate test of a female athlete – the heptathlon. Anne was likewise a keen athlete in her youth. Where she failed, she is determined that her daughter will succeed. But as Anne takes more and more control of her daughter’s life, Megan’s friends drift away and her athletic performance suffers. With the pressure mounting, will Megan run from her big chance, and throw away her Olympic future? A perceptive story of sport and family, written to celebrate the excitement of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
