One of the best horse books for girls...
I love this book because I wrote it for anybody who has ever struggled, or is struggling, to be a winner.
For 15-year-old Emma Duncan, it doesn't look good ... will the losing streak ever end? In the middle of a horse show, Emma scratches out of her next class because her mare, Bonnie Blue, shows everything but winning behavior. When Emma tries the timed events, her feisty horse gives speed a new twist. At home, saddle thieves are on the loose, and so are friend-thieves.
Will Emma’s best friend, Aubrey, abandon her for the rude new girl, Caitlin? Will the chemistry between Emma and the mysterious Enrique turn into something more? Emma’s father utters the word “slaughterhouse”, and Emma understands one thing clearly. She and Bonnie must win or face separation forever.
Here's to all the horse crazy girls in the world!
