I cannot recall a book by Zilpha Keatley Snyder that I did not like; and true to form, this was a winning book for young readers. ( )

Snyder draws on her Californian Depression-era childhood again and, this time, comes up empty-handed. I have no doubt that someone could learn something about that time here and surely comparisons could be drawn between the discrimination towards the Okies and minorities today, but the fact is there are a lot of books that do that better.

Zilpha Keatley Snyder was one of my favorite authors growing up and I remember passing on this book and others by her the same as I passed on other realistic novels by other favorites. That was a good call on my part, because unlike 'Stepping on the Cracks' by Mary Downing Hahn, there was little pleasure here and no sense that I had missed out on something.

There is just no spark to 'Cat Running' and very little originality, everything from the setting, the Kinsey family, the plight of the Okies, the little Cindy Brady Okie Sammy, and even Cat herself come off as underdeveloped cogs in a Very. Important. Lesson. machine.

The only highlight of the book was the discovery of the grotto, a little bit of Snyder's magic came through there. ( )

Cat is a fast runner and she wants to participate in her school's "Play Day" competition (against other schools, for some kind of donation of gym equipment), but she doesn't want to do so wearing a dress. Her dad says that "women in men's clothing are an abomination." This is when I realized that the story takes place in the past, specifically during the Great Depression.
Fortunately, this book is about so much more than Cat's father's antiquated views on fashion. She understandably feels pretty upset about the situation and decides to "run away". She doesn't get far when she finds a refuge. When someone else discovers this refuge Cat must deal with her feelings about sharing her private space and her prejudices against some of her classmates.
This is an excellent historical fiction novel for young readers. Themes that can be discussed in class or with an adult guide include prejudice, feminism, economics and general improvements in day-to-day living since the early 20th century. ( )

Too much in one book *for me.* ?Okies, and the Depression (though it's the first time I've seen a hist. fic. point out that those events coincided), and a religiously conservative father, and adult step-siblings, and a weak mother, and a girl who is a tomboy and allowed to be (though she's not allowed to wear a dress), and even a budding of the feelings of puberty. ?áAbsolutely not a bad book, and some readers will love it. ?áI just wanted more depth. ?á

And I am angry that Mother's 'sick headaches' are dismissed, apparently by the author as well as the characters, as weakness... migraines are real, and seriously incapacitating. ( )

The story is about a girl who lives during the depression and has to deal with the values of the times. Hoping to win the runners' grand finale for a second year in a row, talented runner Cat Kinsey is infuriated when her old-fashioned father refuses to allow her to wear slacks like the other girls, a situation that makes Cat want to give up running. In the end, Cat learns that you can't judge others by what you've been taught about them, instead you must get to know them and learn for yourself.
