When Miho’s boyfriend unexpectedly breaks up with her, she is miserable. In order to get away from the stress of college and break-ups, she decides to participate in a triathlon. With support from her family and friends, she will undergo tough training in order to prepare herself. She gains mental and physical strength with every step she takes.
This book has strong themes of family and friendship. I like that Miho gains strength from the people around her, and she builds a reliable support system from this. The book definitely has some great lessons in it. I learned that sometimes relationships don’t always turn out how you want them to be. Miho is a relatable character in this story; she goes through a journey of self-discovery while building up her self-esteem. I like how the title of the book relates to Miho’s mental journey and the outcome of it. I also enjoy how the cover shows Miho preparing for the triathlon. If you enjoy reading about sports, break-ups, and self-discovery, this book is a good fit for you!
