Description

Zoë's caught the racing bug. Not only is she following in the tire tracks of her older brother as a rally racer, she thinks she might even have the stuff to become a racecar engineer one day. But Zoë's mother has another dream for her daughter, and it's called "Zoë Kendall, M.D." In this fast-action sequel to Racing Fear, Zoë must learn to stand up to her mother's good intentions before her true aspirations come to a screeching halt.

Dream Racer

In this novel in the SideStreets series, Zoe is racing towards her future as an engineer designing cars with boyfriend Adam. Laura, her mother, has made her own plans for Zoe, which include a degree in medicine. Laura has her own problems including a rocky marriage and a son with ADHD all of which led her to give up her own ambitions of medical school. Zoe doesn’t want to disappoint Laura, however agreeing to her mother’s plan leads Zoe down a path of indecision, nightmares, migraine headaches and a disastrously failed biology exam, not to mention trouble with the very patient and understanding Adam.

Guest has been nominated for a National Aboriginal Achievement Award and the prestigious Esquao Award for outstanding achievement by an Aboriginal woman. She has been nominated for the Hackmatack, R. Ross Annett and the Arthur Ellis Mystery awards.
