The Long WalkAudiobook CD - 2010
In an ultra-conservative America of the not-too distant future when America has become a police state, the annual marathon is the ultimate sports competition. One hundred boys are selected each year to enter a grueling 450-mile marathon walk. The game is simple: maintain a steady walking pace of four miles per hour without stopping. Three warnings, and you're out--permanently. The winner will be awarded whatever he wants for the rest of his life; but a single misstep could be the last.
