Squeaky is a girl who has a love and passion for running
Squeaky has a little brother well hes her big brother but she feels she always has to take care of him.
Unfortunately a lot of kids and people call him her little brother cause he needs looking after cause he’s not quite right. So while Squeaky is taking a stroll she stumbles upon some mean girls Gretchen and her friends. She then defends her big brother.
Sadly later on in the story the girls continue to pick on her big brother Raymond
Mr Pearson pins the number on the girls and tells Squeaky she should try to give the other girls a chance at winning the race this year. This makes Squeaky upset and the tension to win the race builds.
The white ribbon is bouncing toward me and I tear past it, racing into the distance till my feet with a mind of their own start digging up foot full of dirt and brake me short.
like a dancer or something he starts climbing up nice and easy but very fast. And it occurs to me, watching how smoothly he climbs hand over hand and remembering how he looked running with his arms down to his side and with the wind pulling his mouth back and his teeth showing and all, it occurred to me that Raymond would make a very fine runner.
