It was a seemingly minor crash at Michigan International Speedway in June 2016 that ended the day early for NASCAR star Dale Earnhardt Jr. What he didn't know was that it would also end his driving for the year. He'd dealt with concussions before, but no two are the same. Recovery can be brutal, and lengthy. At the Boonta stadium, Sise watches from a balcony, taking an interest in Admiral Terrinald Screed. Vlix thanks two tied up aliens for letting them share their private viewing box. Tig is eager to see Thall's speeder blow up. Jord is looking for Thall but the race begins soon. Boba Fett also competes, piloting his Silver Speeder as a late entry.

Anyway, it's a good read, and a book every athlete should read, especially young ones and their parents.

In this episode, C-3PO claims that another droid graduated from the same "production facility" as he had. This may be a continuity issue, as in Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace it is revealed that C-3PO was built by Anakin Skywalker, although this contradiction could be explained by the fact that his memory was set to be erased at the end of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith.

Racing To The Finish brings to life what went on behind the scenes during the last couple years of Dale's racing career, as he suffered from terrible symptoms of brain injury but stubbornly tried to hang on to the sport he loved. It is a brave story told by one of the most popular drivers of our time. Ihre zwei Freunde sind absolut toll! Ich lieeeebe sie. Aber dafür, dass sie beide auch POC‘s sind, hätte ich mir gewünscht auch mehr über ihre Erfahrungen und ihre Geschichte zu erfahren. Sie sind eher dafür da, damit die Geschichte fortlaufen kann. Nichtsdestotrotz liebe ich sie :,)

Ich fand das Buch super easy geschrieben und Aaleyah unglaublich mutig und gerissen. Sie ist nicht nur sehr schlau, sondern auch absolut charakterstark. On the other hand, it is great to see a story like this, featuring such an unusual idea and storyline. Even better when the spunky and wilful MC also happens to wear a hijab! I look forward to seeing what the author comes up with next, because despite some shortcomings, this is certainly a promising start to her writing career. I give it 3.5 stars rounded up to 4 for effort and originality. On the tenth lap, Fett's speeder attempts to trap the White Witch with a tractor beam but R2-D2 hurls the detonator at Fett's speeder. Thall Joben wins the race with the White Witch. Fett is forced to eject from his craft before it explodes, destroying the vehicle and his droid. The announcer and Thall's friends congratulate Thall. C-3PO is also jubilant. Kea also thanks R2-D2.

There were a few times where I was confused about what was happening as there appeared to be no clear marker of a change in scene or paragraph. (Again, this could very well be down to the phone.) Contrary to what one would expect from a book by a NASCAR driver, this is less of a story about the sport and more about today's understanding of concussions. What was most surprising was the revelation that there is a whole body of medicine geared toward overcoming concussion symptoms, that they involve exercises and training instead of invasive surgery, and that these methods are becoming more effective as the years pass. This was fascinating in light of the ongoing issue of CTE in the NFL, and the high-profile tragedies of players like Junior Seau. This makes Earnhardt's story even more of an inspiration, not simply to race fans, but to those dealing with similar conditions - there is help, and people should go and seek it. It was a seemingly minor crash at Michigan International Speedway in June 2016 that ended the day early for NASCAR star Dale Earnhardt Jr. What he didn’t know was that it would also end his driving for the year. He’d dealt with concussions before, but no two are the same. Recovery can be brutal, and lengthy.

Sie ist sich in ihrer Identität und ihrer Religion so sicher und lässt sich von niemandem was einreden. Es ist leider bis heute schwer gute Repräsentation zu finden, aber Aaleyah bekommt Applaus von mir. Why did we have to guess the ethnicity of Alyeah’s friends? I can only assume that they were Latinx and Asian American but could never fully confirm that in the book. Dale Earnhardt Jr. has chronicled his accidents and the injuries that forced him out of the car in a new book, "Racing to the Finish: My Story", co-authored by ESPN senior writer Ryan McGee. There, C-3PO is greeted by the old Proto Droid Proto One, who helps him down. Proto One introduces himself to the humans. Proto-One also tells C-3PO that he was abandoned by his previous masters and that he survived by repairing himself. While C-3PO takes an immediate dislike to Proto One, the old droid gets along with R2-D2 and the three humans. Proto still offers Kea to fix her broken ship while they take Jord to a medical unit. The droids leave with the humans on the White Witch. C-3PO tells R2-D2 to be careful about associating with supposedly unsavory droids like Proto-One.

Ab dann fängt Aaleyah mit Hilfe ihrer Freunde an, die Probleme selbst in die Hand zu nehmen und die Stadt und ihre kuriosen Vermisstenfälle und menschenverachtende Einwohner auffliegen zu lassen. I want to first say that I loved these character so much. Aalyeah was smart, spunky, resourceful, and strongwilled. She was everything that I wanted to read about in a YA character. I also adored her friends, Brianna and Matthew. My only wish was that Aalyeah's brother played a larger role in the book so that it would have been that more meaningful when he was used as bait for the FBI. I was initially drawn to this book by the cover. It’s so striking and it tells you exactly what this book is about.

Now as an educator and looking for relevant books to add to my classroom, I wonder how transformative it would have been for me as a young teen to read a book where my existence is portrayed as strong, fierce and intelligent. Rating this book 5 stars does not do it justice but for now Thank you to the author for sending me a copy of this book via netgalley in exchange for an honest review. When one thinks of concussions and sports, American football immediately comes to mind, but athletes other sports have risks of concussions and the long term effects as well. One of these sports is auto racing, as drivers may suffer concussions from crashes or even bumps against the wall or other cars. This was the case for Dale Earnhardt Jr. as he first exhibited these symptoms in 2012. His memoir explains what happened that day in Kansas and what he went through for the next five years, leading to his decision to retire from racing in 2017.
