Cheche Chepchirchir is a young runner whose dream is to reach the finals of the national athletics championship scheduled for December in the big stadium in Nairobi. This will only happen if she can beat some of the strongest and swiftest secondary school runners of the Great Rift--starting with the Terrifying Tiffany 'Tyranny' Tesfamariam, whose mother was a legendary Ethiopian runner. Inconveniently, Cheche's teachers go on strike around the third term as the exams approach, and the students who refer to themselves as the 'Gang of Six' plot to burn down the school. As if that is not enough trouble, there is the possibility of a new stepmother at home as well as hyenas and a terrorist recruiter lurking in the shadows of Mokongu High School.
