...a beautiful and touching story. It's about the tentative friendship between two people who need each other...It's about the miracles that friends provide for each other and conquering the demons in your past. It's about reaching out to others who need you and making peace with your life. I recommend this novel to readers who are up to a thought-provoking read. While The Running Man is not full of excitement or suspense and is more of an emotional novel, readers will not be disappointed.
