Kyle's fourteen-year-old sister has run away. Haunted by the idea that Meghan's disappearance is his fault, Kyle sets off to track her down.
Kyle never expected to see Calgary's hard side—its seedy neighborhoods marked with trash-filled lots, abandoned buildings, abandoned lives. But when his 14-year-old sister Meghan runs away from home, he knows he has to track her down.
Soon Kyle discovers a dark world of after-hours clubs, desperate street kids, drugs and violence. As he gradually uncovers clues about Meghan's whereabouts, he realizes that she is in grave danger and his search becomes an urgent race against time. Kyle is willing to do what it takes to save Meghan—but will it be enough?
Set against the gritty world of Calgary's inner-city, Runner is a suspenseful story of a brother's love for his troubled sister.
