Eighteen-year-old Annie Winters can barely run a mile without wheezing. Still, she’s training to run the Music City Marathon in seven short months. Running is so not her thing, but she has to finish what her boyfriend started… before he died.
Annie feels guilt that she’s still alive and blames herself
for his death; she has to do this to honor him – running a marathon was
his dream. Plus training gives her something to do, it’s a distraction.
So is Jeremiah Brown.
He’s an adrenaline junkie who runs
marathons backwards. He flirts with Annie on the trails and it makes her
feel alive and happy and guilty all at the same time. She wants to both
race into his arms and sprint in the opposite direction – because
loving is a risk she’s not sure she’s ready to take again…
