The fastest runner in the Defenders squad, Patina is dealing not only with team dynamics and an upcoming relay race but also her challenging home life. Her father is dead, her mother disabled and her little sister relies on her to do her hair and teach her things their white foster mother can’t. Add to that the challenges of fitting in at a swish new school, and it’s no wonder Patty sometimes loses her cool. Can she learn to lean on her teammates, rather than doing everything by and for herself? Second in the Track series, Patina is as funny, sad and compelling as the first story, Ghost.
