Overview

Fear of Falling (Vet Volunteers Series #9) by Laurie Halse Anderson

David is determined to learn to jump on horseback if it kills him. And sometimes he's afraid it might, like when Comet balks and won't go over the crossbar. Now that David's father is back in town, he's promised to teach David how to jump like a champion. But David can't let him know how scared he is. Because there's one thing that scares David more than falling off a horse, and that's disappointing his father. Can he overcome his fear, or even talk about it?

This is a very good book. It tells the readers what is happening in it. I love horses, I own horses, but this book got my attention at once. I've wanted to do jumping for ever. It is a book that is unforegetable. It also tells the bond between Father and son. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did. Read this book and email me what you think.

The pure black fox kit sat in the clearing, playing with a gras hopper. His claws and teeth had grown to full size. He was very good at walking a running, gracfully and steathily. The young fox let the grasshopper go and sat down. Wondering were Sunsoul was. He sighed sadly, wondering if she or his mother would ever come back for him. He was starving...he hadnt eaten for day. ~ Hungry Night
