Product description


In Girl Runner, an exquisitely crafted, deeply imagined novel, former Olympic athlete Aganetha Smart comes to vibrant, often aching life. As she pursues her dream, negotiates the travails of achieving much early in life and navigates the complexities of family and friendship, her captivating story unfolds with the sure-footedness of an elite runner. (Cathy Marie Buchanan, author of The Painted Girls 2014-06-10)

Ultimately, Girl Runner is a beautiful, thoughtful homage to those forgotten women who stepped outside the boundaries of what was allotted to them, and a testament to the struggles and sacrifices that paved the way for the female athletes who followed. (Stacey May Fowles Quill & Quire 2014-08-01)

Girl Runner is a well-paced book that weaves together the past and present narratives of an uncompromising woman’s life … Snyder… manages to capture the essence of the need to run, that marrow-deep desire. (Dani Couture Globe and Mail 2014-09-12)

This is a satisfying story about a complicated and compelling life- a life, so it happens, shaped by running ... Girl Runner makes for a gold medal read. (Erin Balser Canadian Running 2014-09-01)

Girl Runner is a book that will, and should, find a wide audience…one of my favourite books of 2014. (Susan Fish Waterloo Region Record 2014-09-06)

Carrie Snyder has written an extraordinary, accomplished debut novel of love and family: a wonderful story of a free spirit forced to make difficult choices. Aggie Smart is a truly memorable heroine: she grabbed my hand on page one and never let go. (Sara Gruen, author of Water for Elephants and At the Water’s Edge 2015-01-08)

a beautiful story about following your heart… (CBC Books 2014-09-01)

a page turner…revelatory (Waterloo Chronicle 2014-09-02)

readers, get ready to be dazzled (Pickle Me This blog review 2014-09-09)

Girl Runner...more than lives up to the promise of The Juliet Stories (2012) and Hair Hat (2004)...a complex novel...rhythmic and satisfying. (Melanie Brannagan Frederiksen Winnipeg Free Press 2014-09-13)
