    Summary

    100 boys. 4 miles per hour. 1 winner. 99 lost souls.

    One hundred teenage boys participate in an annual walking contest called "The Long Walk". Each Walker must maintain a speed of at least four miles per hour; if he drops below that speed for 30 seconds, he receives a verbal warning. If a Walker with three warnings slows down again, he will get shot dead by soldiers riding in half-tracks along the roadside. The winner receives "The Prize": anything he wants for the rest of his life.

    Ray felt a strange warmth where McVries’ hand had been. It felt comfortable and soothing and he almost wished he would put it back and leave it there.

    But why would he wish for something like that? Where did that fascination with McVries come from? Was he that tired that his mind began playing tricks on him? That he was longing for a guy to touch him. Seriously, what was it about this boy? But no matter how hard he wracked his brain, he came up blank. Maybe he was just lonely. Lonely between these 25 remaining boys. Lonely between the rows of shouting and cheering people, decorating the shoulders of their little grey world.
