Fourteen-year-old Patrick and his mother leave their small
town for Ottawa, where Patrick quickly becomes frustrated at
his new-kid status. Out of boredom, he steals a pair of
headphones from the Rideau Centre, and tries to run, climb
and jump his way out of trouble when he is caught. To his
surprise, the police officer, Constable Jack, is willing to
get the charges dropped — on one condition: Patrick has to
train with him in parkour, or freerunning, for twelve weeks.
Since he's behind his teammates, Patrick trains extra hard
and finds that he has a talent for parkour — and that,
maybe, he belongs in the city. He also finds a crush,
Parker, who has a background in gymnastics, and a rival,
Jayden, who has a bad attitude. Both boys become determined
to outdo one another and win Parker's heart. When the
tension between them reaches new heights, Constable Jack
surprises Patrick again: He won't punish the boys, and
they'll settle the score in a competition. But they aren't
just fighting for the prize for best individual — there's
also the prize for best club at stake. That means Patrick
and Jayden will have to learn to work together.
Freerunner is David Trifunov's latest story exploring
jealousy, status and self-esteem on and off the play area.
