Ada has asthma, but we see her training hard and winning a race with the help of her trainer, her medication, her herbalist - and a lot of grit. Throughout the book there are cartoon characters giving us basic facts, and the colour photos show us a positive young black woman living a full life. Pages of information at the end give us more facts, ways to help, addresses, and information about becoming an athlete. Large print.
