"Chasing Hope" by Kathryn Cushman

About this book:

“A Personal Drama of Shattered Dreams and Second Chances
A talented runner fully committed to Olympic dreams, Sabrina Rice's future was shattered by a devastating diagnosis. One forfeited scholarship and several years later, she has new goals and dreams that have nothing to do with running--something that's become far too painful to think on.
Until the day she sees Brandy Philip running across the community college campus, easily outpacing security. Sabrina immediately recognizes world-class speed, and it's all the more painful that it belongs to a teenage graffiti artist. When a chance encounter brings the two young women together, Sabrina becomes Brandy's best hope for staying out of juvenile hall. Soon, Sabrina begins to feel an uncomfortable nudge that her new life is just about to be toppled...that God may be calling her to minister to this talented but troubled girl.”

This Book had the most perfect ending, one where I’m actually okay there’s not a sequel/series… not that I wouldn't love one, but a sequel is supposed to top the first, and that can’t happen to ‘Chasing Hope’, it’s already the best. With the whole overall book, I didn’t like that the back cover shows two girls running, when Sabrina can’t run without causing herself pain. Other than that, the whole book was lovely. ‘Chasing Hope’ almost made me want to pick up running. Almost. ;)
