“ On three. One,Two,Three.” We took off running on the tips of our toes. Mine cramped up instantly. The pain was too much.I screamed.I tried to switch to running normally.My feet slipped out from under me.I lost my grip on the sled and went flying down the track on my stomach.
Fiorenze skidded beside me,screaming.I could hear the shush of the sled behind us.We were going to lose fingers, and break bones. Why had I rejected the helmets?
“ Bloody benighted fragging poxy doxhead fairies of dung!” Or at least that’s what it was in my head. I think it came out as a strangled AARGH .

I was going so fast water streamed out of my eyes and down my face. My body shifted left, then right, going with the turns without my doing anything on purpose. I was just falling. I could imagine the fright a fairy would be experiencing, because I was experiencing it
The track zoomed by so fast now that everything was spinning in white. It and Fiorenze’s terrified face were all I could see.
I didn’t want to die.
I didn’t even want to nearly die.
If I were a fairy I would have jumped off by now.
Then I did jump off. Fiorenze too.
There was no ice underneath me, just air. And a sled flying over my head.
Why the world should read this book
