Girl Runner by Carrie Snyder

Snyder is another Wordfest discovery for me. The life of a 104 year old Aganetha Smart is told in flashbacks, from her childhood to a gold medal appearance at the 1928 Olympics to the present, so gender issues in sport is a major theme. The rest of the book is about relationships, family and friends. Overall excellent storytelling.
