Here is my entry for the holiday break reading challenge activity #1. I'm hoping to win a prize!
Heather is a workout instructor at the local Y. All day long she works with women helping them "sweat off the pounds." Her life revolves around exercise. One evening when she is leaving the Y late she catches a young girl trying to sneak into a side door. After further investigation she finds that the girl is homeless and has been staying at the Y after hours. Heather, confronted with her own childhood memories of abandonment is forced to exercise a muscle that she hasn't been able to use for a very long time-her heart.
