Noah Meyers is a fast runner--faster than all his friends, faster than the bullies who wait for him outside his school.

When he's asked to train with the Clarington Vikings in Oshawa he jumps at the chance, eager to focus on something other than his father's recent death. Soon after he qualifies for provincial finals, however, tragedy threatens to strike again, and Noah has to summon all his courage to stay on track.

Fast Finish is the engaging story of a young athlete who overcomes a tragic past in order to succeed.

"From the first chapter it is obvious that this book moves beyond a simple retelling of a sports activity. It is about a real child, living in our real and complex world while participating in the sport of running."

- Margot Griffin Regina Leader-Post
