The world of professional cycling and tenth of a second finishes is the backdrop for this story of friendship, parenthood and the "heartbreak of defeat".  Long-time friends and rivals, Kate and Zoe compete for a spot on the 2012 Olympic team. The voice of Kate's daughter Sophie, suffering with leukemia, is stunningly honest and wrenches everyone back to reality. Cleave is the author of the bestselling Little Bee and Incendiary.
