Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Jane Van Wiemokly
This Canadian series focuses on sports stories. Each concerns a different sport and how it affects the main character. In Rescue Rider, Dev Rani wants to concentrate on her horseback riding, but family obligations and high school manage to intrude. She is expected to help with the family's Indian restaurant, her uncle's upcoming wedding, and to improve her science grade. Her focus, though, is on a new horse rescued by her stable owner from being put down. In Making Select, Tyler's parents dream of him advancing in high school ice hockey by pushing him hard to work toward a professional career, but he does not share that dream at this point in his life. He is thoroughly burned out and simply wants to be a teen, doing the regular things that teens do, including going to the movies, going to parties, and not having to worry about getting up early for practice. Both stories have some aspects in common. Each depicts parents who, at first, seem uncaring, but, after better communicating together, end up supporting their child's life choices. Each main character has good friends or relatives who help them clarify in their mind what they want and devise plans to implement it. Each includes enough sports scenes to propel the action. These satisfying reads are good for reluctant readers, especially those with sports interests, and in particular horseback riding and ice hockey. (Sports Stories) Reviewer: Jane Van Wiemokly
Children's Literature - Heather Welsh
Thirteen-year-old Dev Rani is the trainer of the region's champion mare, Mirror Glider. The two are practically inseparable, but then Mirror Glider hurts her leg in a jumping competition. That isn't the only challenge Dev faces. For one thing, she has to trade work in the stable for riding lessons. For another, she doesn't like to see others fail. It's her gentle and hard-working nature that makes her perfect for Zim, the horse that no one else seems to be able to train. However, as anyone that's worked with wild horses knows, training them takes time, which is something Dev is short on. In addition to her duties at the stable, there's also her failing grades in Science and her job at her father's restaurant. That doesn't leave much time for Dev to spend with Zim. Will Dev be able to get it together in time to give Zim the love and attention he needs, or will her dad have to take away her favorite hobby? Fans of the "Lorimer Sports Stories" series will not be disappointed with this addition. Short chapters and larger font will appeal to reluctant readers. Horse enthusiasts will love the accurate use of equine terminology. Reviewer: Heather Welsh
