About Raymond's Run...

Raymonds Run is just a small story based on a girl who learns to respect eachother in the end. The main character "Squeaky" Is so cool. I love her attitude, she will not let anybody tell her what to do. She wont Let anybody bully her and she will stand up for her brother. Plus when things get too rough, she runs for it. I Also love the ending of the story when Squeaky respects her opponent and her opponent respects her. Becuase they both know they tried thier hardest.
