The Runner by Keith Gray


review this book

Reviewer: Author Cid
Ages: Y5, Y6       Genres: Adventure & Action, Lifestyle & Family Issues

Review: Jason decides to leave home and gets on a train to go to his brother’s house. On the train is a boy called Jam – he is a ‘runner’ – a boy who dodges paying the fare. He doesn’t have a home and lives on the trains. It all sounds very exciting to Jason who wonders if he should become a runner too! A good short story that explores the idea of running away and that it might not be the answer to your problems.
