Professional Reviews ( Amazon Vine Voice and Kirkus Reviews)

"If you like wimpy kid, You'll love Jack Vandergriff"

THE TRACK TRAINING DIARY OF A NOT-SO-FAST SKINNY KID is filled with humor, quirky characters, and laugh-out-loud adventures. All Jack Vandergriff wants is to be awesome at something in middle school. Track seems like a good idea, right? Unfortunately there are a few problems. Like, as a runner, he's not so fast. Like, his bratty little sister has a big mouth. Like, his best friend Broc turns into an enemy for no reason Jack can figure out. Jack starts a diary to record all his great races. But he can't help telling about everything else going on in his quest for greatness — even when it's not so great. Whether he's winning or losing, you can't help rooting for him. THE TRACK TRAINING DIARY OF A NOT-SO-FAST SKINNY KID is a fun and funny book for middle school readers." -Amazon Vine Voice


"In Choates’… first YA novel, a young man barely survives middle school challenges on and off the track while learning life lessons."-Kirkus Reviews

“Choates offers a believable protagonist in Jack as a kind of middle school Everykid: somewhat nerdy, painfully insecure, needing to belong where it counts, and not above desperate lying.”- Kirkus Reviews

"A promising YA debut…"-Kirkus Reviews
