The Longest Fall - Book Review

"While cross country was the epitome of a team sport, each runner was always alone. In all the grueling runs, practices, workouts, and races they were always on their own. The decision always came down to one person: The runner. The real enemy was not another runner or the team - it wasn't outside the runner. The real battle took place within."

The Longest Fall by Lee Krinsky follows a cross country team who struggles together and as individuals after the loss of their team leader and number one runner. Take the journey with them throughout the fall as they strive to accomplish what was set out for them over the summer by their captain and friend.
