If there were a book that never ended this would be the book I would choose. I really liked Raina and her relationship to her cousins. Some of them were younger and some of the cousins were older. Since I am the oldest of six children, I liked that Raina was in the middle and could relate to the older and younger cousins. When Raina discovers she is good at track I was very excited for her and I was eager to see if she would win each of her races. The author did a great job of making me want to see what happened with Raina.
