Verdict: The Runner is a beautifully poignant and emotionally solid portrait of Bullet.
Reasons for reading it: I adore Cynthia Voigt and The Runner reminded me why.
How it came into my hands: I went on a mad charity shop spree in Oxford, having been keeping myself out of second hand bookshops for several weeks while I was in the process of moving house. And the Mind shops on Jericho Street turned out to be particularly impressive for books!

I highly, highly recommend The Runner (and indeed anything by Voigt).
