An action-packed, empowering middle grade novel about a girl whose wheelchair motocross dreams get turned upside down.

Twelve-year-old Emmie is working to raise money for a tricked-out wheelchair to get serious about WCMX (wheelchair motocross), when a wipeout on a rickety ramp throws her plans into a tailspin. Instead of replacing the ramp, her school provides her with a kind but unwelcome aide—and, seeing a golden media opportunity, launches a public fundraiser for her. Emmie loves her close-knit rural town, but she can’t shake the feeling that her goals suddenly aren't hers anymore. With the help of her best friends, Emmie makes a plan to get her dreams off the ground—and show her community what she wants, what she has to give, and how ready she is to do it on her own terms.
