Early Praise for On the Road to Find Out, a Spring 2014 selection of the Junior Library Guild:

“In a light and gently humorous romance, self-centered Alice learns to run, to cope with disappointment and to consider other people’s feelings . . . warm, funny and wise.” – Kirkus Reviews

“This is a road worth taking.”  Publishers Weekly

On the Road to Find Out is a smart and beguiling novel about rejection, running, and the way life can recalculate around a roadblock.” – Jean Hanff Korelitz, author of Admission

Rachel Toor’s novel On the Road to Find Out is challenging, upbeat, poignant, funny and just … so cool. I wish I hadn’t read this story of running-as-life so I’d still have it to look forward to. – Jacquelyn Mitchard, author of The Deep End of the Ocean

On the Road to Find Out is entertaining, surprising, and inspiring. I loved spending time inside Alice’s bizarre and charming brain. I am definitely not a runner. But reading this book somehow made me feel like, ‘I could do that!’ which is how I know it is a very convincing work of fiction.”  —Leila Sales, author of This Song Will Save Your Life

“Rachel Toor has never been afraid of blazing her own trail, and in On the Road to Find Out she does just that. Fresh and imaginative, it hooked me from the first page. Readers of any age, runner or not, are sure to find this book both inspiring and endearing.”  —Dean Karnazes, endurance athlete and New York Times–bestselling author

“Rachel Toor gets it about running; this is the book I’d like my daughters to read, and I suspect a lot of young people would like their parents to read. Rachel can write like hell—she’s got the firepower and understands how the simple act of becoming a runner changes lives for the better.”     —Bill Rodgers, four-time winner of the Boston and NYC marathons, author of Marathon Man:My 26.2-Mile Journey from Unknown Grad Student to the Top of the Running World
