Sunny is the third in Reynolds’ acclaimed Track series about four kids on the track team with wildly different backgrounds whose personalities are explosive when they clash. Each book is told from the perspective of one of the four kids and Sunny tells the tale of a protagonist who struggles to shine despite a troubled past and difficult relationship with his dad.

For Every One, a poem originally performed at the Kennedy Center for the unveiling of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, is a rallying cry to the dreamers of the world.
