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.
