In speaking with a young lady on the cross-country team, I made the error of recommending a book whose name I can't recall.

It was a teen romance, about a girl and her father. I believe that her mother was dead. The girl and her father had taken to running together. They had moved to a new town, where the girl-- who had waist-length hair, joined the cross country team, gained a preachy boyfriend, and became a Star at Cross-Country. Somewhere near the end of the book, she cuts her hair from waist length to chin length.

That's all I remember about the book. It was probably written in the 80's, since I remember reading it at age 11 or 12.

Do you know the author or the title? It sounds stupid, but it would probably make this young lady happy.
