Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Suzanna E. Henshon
Have you ever wanted to ride a horse? Girls who love horses will have the chance to imagine themselves riding freely through the pages of this book, attending riding classes with Sasha Silver as she begins her studies at Canterwood Crest Academy, one of the nation's premier riding and academic schools. When Sasha arrives on campus, she is nervous about fitting in. In fact, it's not a smooth transition. On the first day, her horse Charm causes an accident when he breaks free and runs off. In science class, Sasha struggles to remember answers to summer reading questions. But soon Sasha is riding confidently and making friends; she quickly finds her footing at Canterwood Crest. Then it comes time to make the top riding team, and Sasha wonders how true her friendships really are. When Sasha shows her riding skills, several of her schoolmates become jealous. Will Sasha rise to the occasion and make the advanced riding team by the end of the first semester? Or will the pressure of attending an elite academy and riding at the national level be too much? Girls who love horses will enjoy this and other books in the "Canterwood Crest" series. Reviewer: Suzanna E. Henshon, Ph.D.
