When Joseph agreed to join the track team, he had no idea what he would be facing. Worms. Singlets. And Charlie Kastner. If it weren’t for Heather, Joseph would already have dropped out of the race.

:) really liked this book

Review by purplebobcat

side tracked was the first book I got from pjourway, and it was great! I actually have ADD like the main character, so it was relatable. the plot was great, the characters were great, and the conflict was great. I loved it, would definitely recommend!

So-so, but kinda fun

Review by Fig64

This book is great for if you like track and running. Also if you like books that have a main character that has an illness. And the book actually says what the illness is. Most books don’t. Personally, I think this book is kind of boring, but that’s just my opinion.

Side Tracked

Review by crazepug

Hi!! I'm Sara and I read the book Side Tracked in May. Side Tracked is a really good book based of a boy named Joseph who was on the cross country team. He experienced a lot of bumps on the way to the Big Game!
