Running with Lions

Julian Winters



Funny, wise, and ridiculously romantic. It hit me right in the heart.

—Becky Albertalli, author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

A heartwarming freshman novel from an author poised to be a modern Matt Christopher for an older audience.

Kirkus Reviews

A warm, funny, smart and poignant debut, full of heart and full of hope. I loved the adorably cute relationship that emerges between Sebastian and Emir, I loved the humour, and I loved being reminded what it’s like to be a teenager during a long, hot, messy summer, when everything is new and exciting, anything seems possible, and the world is opening out in front of you. I throughly enjoyed it and hope it gets all the accolades and praise it deserves.

—Simon James Green, author of Noah Can’t Even
