Impulsive and full of zeal is exactly what young Alyce Benson is. When she sees the tiny faces of children in need in Africa she pledges three thousand dollars to help the mission work over there. Unfortunately, Alyce pledges her father’s money, money he is not willing to part with. Now she has to come up with the money or look like a fool in front of the entire church congregation. Good thing Alyce likes to drive—really fast.
I don’t think I have ever read a story set in this time about women racers, or even women drivers for that matter. It seems that just driving around town was frowned upon by society. Alyce manages to conceal her identity and enter several races to earn her money, but has to deceive her family along the way. She has a heart of gold that gets her in trouble when mixed with her impulsiveness. It’s a fun story where we get to watch as our heroine does a lot of growing up.For more information about this book--click here--or the title above!
