Armistice Runner

A discovery about the past fuels our next shortlisted book by Tom Palmer, Armistice Runner.

Lily has lots of worries. She’s struggling to compete in her junior fell-running races and, worse, she’s losing her gran to Alzheimer’s.

But then she discovers her great-great-grandfather’s diaries from the First World War.

Could his incredible story of bravery help her reconnect with her gran and even give her the inspiration she needs to push through and win?

 Two lives connected by a memory.
