Is author Jason Reynolds a middle school girl in disguise? Did he secretly attend an all-girls academy and record their conversations? The interactions between Patina, her classmates and the girls on her relay team will have readers asking the same questions. Like Ghost, the first book in the Track series, Patina is a fast-paced, well-developed story with emotional depth and unique and believable characters. Be prepared to laugh, cry, and run to the library for the next book in the series, Sunny.

Patina is the second book in Jason Reynold's Track series featuring a group of fast and fiery kids who discover their individual strengths and the power of teamwork. Book two features Patty who is out to prove her ma is right when she says, "Patty ain't no junk."

Patina (Patty) is trying to get used to a new school, which is much fancier than her old one, a new elite track team and the trials and tribulations of 7th grade. Her and her little sister now live with their Aunt and Uncle, because their Mom who has diabetes and has lost both legs can no longer take care of them and Dad died a few years ago. Throughout the book Patty learns to adjust to everything and learns quite a few valuable lessons along the way.
