Trent and Adam were best friends and rally racing buddies until a terrible accident, when Adam was at the wheel, puts Trent in the hospital. After a long separation, the teens try to pick up their friendship where it left off, but Adam's guilty feelings and Trent's odd behaviour make it tough. Why is Trent hanging around Marcus, a guy he says he can't stand? And why isn't his Ritalin working anymore?
When Adam discovers Trent is dealing with the dark side, it's a race to save his friend from himself. Racing Fear is an action-packed ride that takes a hard look at the selling of prescription drugs.

"This novel is a good combination of sporting action, suspense and romance. Guest does a marvelous job of telling a good story and provoking thought about current teen concerns and yet leaving the reader satisfied with a good read along with a positive message. Highly recommended."

- Ann Ketchenson CM: Canadian Review of Materials

"Racing Fear is an enjoyable book. It will appeal to students who suffer from ADHD or have been in a car accident and are finding it difficult to 'get back in the saddle again.'"

- Resource Links

"[Racing Fear is fast-paced and has good character development and natural dialogue. The theme of friendship is incorporated into the story in a realistic way without being too obvious. Suitable for reluctant readers."

- School Library Journal
