Sunny Lancaster is a winner. Wih-winner. When it comes to the 1600 meter, Sunny can beat anyone by, well, a mile. But for Sunny, winning is boring. Buh-boring. Truth is, Sunny doesn't like running. Never has. What Sunny really loves... is dancing.The boom-bap bap of his teacher. Aurelia's dance routines beats the chick chick chick of his track meets any day. Sunny loves his team, though, so he can't quit, but he also can't be on a track team not run. And he definitely can't be on a track team and dance. But it turns out track isn't just chick chick chick. It's also whoosh whoosh ahh.If Sunny lets loose everything he's been holding inside, will it be his best move ever, or will it be his biggest mistake?...

Sunny (Track #3) Reviews
Gobbled SUNNY up from cover to cover this morning. Number 3 in the series makes these kids' lives more real every time. Run. Dance. Throw. Just move. Jason Reynolds, you can do no wrong! Wih-winner!
Oh man. Sunny. I've been waiting for your book. Written entirely in diary entries, SUNNY is beautiful, sensitive, and an absolute masterpiece like all of Jason's books. I thought the way that Jason represents Sunny's love of music and dancing, the way that he sees the world, was really cool. I think this is my favorite of the series.
Jason Reynolds has a way with words, as if most of us don’t already know that. The third installment to his Track series, Sunny is an insight into Sunny’s life on and off the track. The best lesson I can take away is when life gets you down, seems hard, be weird like Sunny, and dance.
Sunny was good! It was different than the first two books in the series because Sunny is a very different narrator than Ghost and Patina. This book is told through Sunny's diary entries. He is kind of a weirdo! But in a good way. I liked learning more about his life at home and his relationship with his father. They have a complicated relationship (to say the least) because Sunny's mom died giving birth to him. I didn't like this one as much as Ghost or Patina, but I still liked it. Now for the ...more
All the best of Jason Reynolds, and audio by Guy Lockard (when in doubt, listen to Jason Reynolds books!). Took me a while to warm up to this book, I think it reminded me too much of my teen, whose thoughts and conversations are all over the place and can be exhausting!
But Sunny is so sweet, and such a touching story, and the interactions with his father, and friends, visits to the hospital, all great. And the end of course leaves me with a few tears in my eyes. Loved it!
Sunny Lancaster is one of the fastest members of the Defenders track team. His race is the mile, and he always comes in 1st place. There’s one problem though. Sunny hates to run! He only does it because his father, Darryl, has always encouraged him to run to “make his mother proud.” Sunny feels guilty, for his mother passed away the day he was born. He feels responsible, even calling himself a murderer. Sunny lives his life for his mother, but soon he starts realizing that needs to start living ...more
I like this series so much! Though Sunny's headspace took me a little bit to get used to I definitely ended up loving him just as much as I did Ghost and Patty, and now I'm reeeeeally looking forward to Lu's book. Also, just, you know, any Jason Reynolds book ever.
I loved this book so, so much.
