G-Force Synopsis

Rising star Eddie Stewart is on the starting grid of one of the greatest races in the world, the Indianapolis 500.With an innovative new car, an international sponsor, and the support of a talented team, Eddie seems to have everything he needs for success. But he soon discovers that he will have to deal with much more than the risks of wheel-to-wheel racing at over 200 miles per hour. A mysterious series of crashes threatens to end Eddie's dream before it even begins.School Library JournalGr 5–8—Race driver Eddie Stewart has made it onto a team headed for the Indianapolis 500, but a series of mysterious "accidents" wrecks their cars and threatens lives. Despite the danger, Eddie and the crew keep on, uncovering a mole and hitting the checkered flag. Racing enthusiasts will enjoy the play-by-play and the technical details, and newcomers to the sport may be amazed at the strength training necessary to build stamina for a race. Both will admire the hi-tech efforts in fine-tuning cutting-edge racing machines and keeping them on the road at speeds well over 200 mph. While the plot is not terribly complex, Hampshire's writing is engaging enough to keep readers going, and for some of the boys who balk at books, this may be just the thing.—Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY
