With a grandmother from China and another from Ghana, fifteen-year-old Wing is often caught between worlds. But when tragedy strikes, Wing discovers a talent for running she never knew she had. Wing's speed could bring her family everything it needs. It could also stop Wing getting the one thing she wants…

Throughout January, over 40 bloggers will be participating in the #WJphototour – a photo blog tour documenting Katherine’s path to publishing her debut novel. From childhood memories that inspired her writing to her time living in Atlanta and Asia that influenced the book to authors she’s met over the years right up to receiving her first finished copy of the book, follow along to see Katherine’s author life unfold! Keep an eye on the hashtag to see the latest photos! Now, over to Katherine Webber...
Whew! If you’ve been following along this whole time, WELL DONE! I hope you aren’t bored of my face and that you enjoyed finding out about my path to publication and what inspired me! I wanted to end the #WJPhotoTour with something to inspire other aspiring authors and writers. This is one of my favorite quotes, I have it on a postcard next to my bed. Being a published author is a dream come true, but I started writing because I love it. Because it makes me happy. Everyone’s path to publication is different and unique. Don’t get discouraged. Maybe it won’t be by the time you thought you would, or it won’t be with the first book you write, or even the second. Have hope. You’ll get there.
