"Raymond's Run." Toni Cade Bambara.

One-minute review: Young girl who knows what she is good at—running—who can’t stand phoniness, who must look out for her retarded brother, who proclaims that she is what she is—not what society wants her to be; who, at last, respects her rival runner and begins to plan a new career—coach for her brother to make him, not her, the track star in the family tradition. An honest, courageous young girl’s view of society and herself.
