A young ultra-marathon runner is pushed to the breaking point and beyond in this gripping tale of physical endurance and emotional healing.

Quinn has been called a superhero and a freak of nature. At age 13, he's an amazing distance runner. He takes on the second-hardest challenge of his life when he enters his first ultramarathon: a grueling 100-mile, 24-hour-long race that will push him to the very limit of his endurance.

While Quinn struggles to go on - up a mountain and through the night, as his muscles break down and he begins to hallucinate - we learn why the ultra-marathon is only the second hardest thing he has endured in his young life. And maybe this devastating event from his past is exactly what Quinn has been running from . . .

Framed as an interview with a media commentator after Quinn's newsmaking finish, this remarkable debut novel from ultra-marathon runner David Carroll reminds us that when we dare to challenge what is possible, the word impossible loses its meaning.

DAVID CARROLL is a CBC Radio producer and a long-distance runner with four 100-mile races under his belt. He has written short stories and radio series for NPR, as well as numerous CBC programs including Canada Reads, GO, Sounds Like Canada, The Arts Today, Tapestry, DNTO, and Grooveshinny. David's writing has also appeared in Canadian Running Magazine. He lives in Toronto. His website is www.writerunrepeat.com.
