Read an Excerpt


PLENTY TO
PRACTICE

CHARM’S HOOVES POUNDED AGAINST THE indoor arena floor and helped drown out my own unwanted thoughts. He gathered himself, surged into the air, and bounded over the vertical with red-and-white-striped poles. We flew by the windows in the arena. Not even a hint of light came through—it was barely five thirty in the morning. I’d been at the stable since four forty-five.

My chestnut gelding and I were the only ones here. Monday morning lessons for the advanced team wouldn’t start for another hour or so. My chest tightened at the thought. Callie and Eric would be here soon.

I urged Charm to keep up his canter. I didn’t want to think about Callie, the best friend I’d lied to in order to protect her from the truth and had lost anyway. And I couldn’t even begin to think about Eric, my amazing ex-boyfriend who had witnessed something so horrible it had ruined our relationship and any possible chance of us getting back together. I’d barely slept for the past two nights and I was edgy and exhausted—ever since my little white lies had all come crashing down around me at my birthday party on Friday night.

Charm and I had been practicing almost nonstop all weekend. It kept me busy and away from my other BFF and roommate Paige, who didn’t believe my story about my initiating the kiss with Jacob. Paige wouldn’t stop asking me about it, so I’d spent as little time in our room as possible all weekend. But on Canterwood Crest Academy’s campus, there were few places to escape.

I looked up just as Heather Fox walked into the arena. Heather, the leader of the Trio, was my enemy most of the time, but she’d helped me out the night of the party. I slowed Charm to a trot, then a walk.

Heather’s blond hair was pulled into a low ponytail and she had on black yoga pants and a casual T-shirt. She didn’t have a lesson this morning, so why was she here?

I stopped Charm in front of her.

Heather folded her arms and started at me—her ice-blue eyes seemed to cut right through my thoughts.

“What?” I asked her.

What is that I get hard-core practicing, but you’re being insane. If Mr. Conner caught you jumping alone—you’d be in so much trouble.”

“Coming from you?” I laughed, willing my voice to sound stronger than I felt. “You practice all of the time. You’re here more than anyone. And it’s not like I’m on the cross-country course—I’m in the stable.”

Heather made an Are you kidding me? face. I silently agreed—my argument was weak.

Heather reached out and rubbed Charm’s blaze. “I’m practicing because I want to. You’re practicing because you’re trying to ignore what happened on Friday.”

“Heather, I have nothing to do but ride. Who cares why I’m doing it?”

She rolled her eyes. “Oh, puh-lease, Silver. Maybe you’d have more options if you stopped spinning the I-kissed-my-best-friend’s-boyfriend lie. Why aren’t you telling Callie the truth?”

“It is the truth,” I lied. “I kissed Jacob. I cheated on Eric. Callie was crazy about Jacob and now she hates me. It is what it is.”

Heather stared at me for a long second. Like Paige, she’d known I’d been lying that night.

“Don’t make the mistake that I care, because I don’t, but you need to tell the truth. Paige and I know you’re lying. Tell Callie what really happened—whatever it is—because it’s going to come out eventually.”

But it couldn’t. If Callie found out that Jacob had kissed me and had been trying to get me back since before summer vacation, she’d be devastated. I’d rather Callie lost our on-again-off-again friendship than her very first boyfriend who, when all was said and done, was a really amazing guy. Just a little … confused.

Charm shifted beneath me and I ran my hand down his neck. “Callie’s happy. She may hate me, but she’s got Jacob.”

“Then at least tell the truth,” Heather said. “The last thing I need to see is your mopey face every day.”

“I’m not moping. Look, I just …” I shrugged, looking down at Charm instead of at Heather. “I want to be by myself for a while.”

Heather raised her hands in an I give up gesture. “Fine. Be alone. Be miserable because you have no friends. But don’t let it affect the team. I’m serious, Silver.” She started to walk away, then turned back. Her gaze softened and her eyes weren’t so piercing anymore. “Just don’t make the mistake I did last year. Riding can’t be everything.”

She walked out of the arena. I took a breath and looked out the door after her. I could leave right now and go get ready for class. Charm was probably tired after three days of nonstop practicing.

But instead, I turned him toward the arena’s center and urged him into a trot. We had a few dressage moves to work on. There were plenty of other things to practice and I wouldn’t be going back to my room until the last possible minute.

Heather had been wrong about one thing—riding was everything now. It had to be.

    Another Outstanding Canterwood Book!

    Jessica Burkhart is a talented writer, and it shows in The Canterwood Crest Series. If you have not read them, they are based for a tween age, and are full of horseback riding and social drama. This is the seventh book.

    It's Homecoming week, a famous time of school spirit, and Sasha Silver couldn't be less enthusiastic. All she wants to do is ride and study, now that she has found her footing at Canterwood and has almost no friends. However, it's not going to work out that way...

    In addition to this, Sasha is feeling confused about whether or not Julia and Allison cheated on the exam that had had them kicked off the riding team, and she's maybe even forming an alliance with former...bullies?

    And, of course, Sasha is still freaked out about Jacob's secret confession, and her ex-BFF Callie is being more hostile than ever. Does the drama ever end?

    RR= Amazing Book

    I absolutly loved this book. I have read all of the books in the series so far and this is my second favorite one. This book was very absorbing. Sasha is in the middle of a fight with her best friend and is very confused about which boy she likes. I'm sure lots of girls can relate to the challenges Sasha has. And the ending was a cliff hanger so i can't wait to get the next book and see what happens.

    Canterwood Crest: Rival Revenge (Book 7)

    Here is yet another example of Jessica Burkhart's natural talent and voice. Canterwood Crest: Rival Revenge is the seventh book in the Canterwood Crest Series. It combines horses, drama, and lip gloss together in a way that catches the reader and draws them in instantly. It is entertaining, absorbing, and funny. Jessica Burkhart's unique and captivating voice brings the CC characters to life. The CC girls are relatable and fascinating with real-life problems, thoughts, actions, and situations. Every character is unique and fun. This book is the perfect recipe with a mix of good characters, fun horses, and drama filled situations (but always with a touch of humor). Jessica Burkhart may easily be one of best tween/teen writers in the world. She really knows how to make the books fun, yet dramatic; serious, yet funny; horsey, yet not overly horsey. She has an amazing gift and writes with a voice that will take you over and draw you in effortlessly. I always am excited for the next book and they have never failed to thrill me. Here is my take on Canterwood Crest: Rival Revenge:

    13-year-old Sasha Silver has just gotten her footing at the elite Canterwood Crest Academy. That is, until her disastrous 13th birthday party where she lies to two of the people she cares most about and loses them, along with the trust of the whole grade. Well not the whole grade. Two people still know the truth: Her ex-enemy/now...friend? , Heather Fox, and, Paige Parker, her loyal BFF and roomier. To cover up her pain, she throws herself fully towards riding and studying. To add to her worries, she now doubts the fact that Julia Myer and Alison Robb (Heather's BFF's) really cheated. Sasha overextends herself and it leads to physical and mental problems? Then the truth comes out about Alison and Julia. Did they really cheat? Find out in Canterwood Crest: Rival Revenge.

    I am totally in love with this series! This book is mainly the aftermath from Sasha's painful 13th birthday party. She starts to really become friends with the Trio which throws her off. Along with the fact that she misses her ex-BFF more than ever. It may seem boring compared to the very eventful Canterwood Crest: Little White Lies and may seem like an extension of LWL, in some ways. But in my mind I see it as its own book. I really enjoyed it and I'm sure you will too. I would recommend this book to girls, ages 9-15. Even if you aren't horse crazy I bet you will love this book! Find out more in Canterwood Crest: Rival Revenge!
