9781444006360: The One Dollar Horse

Fifteen year old Casey Blue lives in East London's grimmest tower block and volunteers at a local riding school, but her dream is to win the world's greatest Three Day Event: the Badminton Horse Trials. When she rescues a starving, half-wild horse, she's convinced that the impossible can be made possible. But she has reckoned without the consequences of her father's criminal record, or the distraction of a boy with melty, dark eyes, with whom she refuses to fall in love. Casey learns the hard way that no matter how high you jump, or how fast you gallop, you can never outrun the past. A real life thriller that delves into the competitive and elite equestrian world from the 2011 BLUE PETER BOOK OF THE YEAR award-winning author.

About the Author:

Lauren St John was born in Gatooma, Rhodesia, now Kadoma, Zimbabwe. Aged 11 she and her family moved to Rainbow's End farm in Gadzema, which later became the subject of her memoir. After studying journalism, she relocated to England, where she was golf correspondent to the SUNDAY TIMES. She is the author of several books on sports and music, as well as the award-winning children's quartet The White Giraffe and the BLUE PETER AWARD-winning Laura Marlin series. She has also recently written an adult novel, The Obituary Writer, published in 2013. Prize-winning author who can turn her hand to any genre, Lauren's ONE DOLLAR HORSE trilogy is perfect for horse lovers everywhere, whether you are an expert, or have always longed to own a pony.

Review:

Full of equine detail the book is definitely one for horse-lovers though the story is so strong that it will interest non-horsey types too. The underlying message is that a dream is achievable if you are willing to put in the hard work and make the sacrifices. * CAROUSEL * Certain to be a huge favourite with readers and will bear comparison with classic horse stories by authors such as Patricia Leitch and KM Peyton. * BOOKS FOR KEEPS * ...one of the best characters in this thrilling rags-to-riches tale is Storm Warning. You can't help but identify with this courageous animal and St John makes you feel the thrill of what it must be like to jump over a fence on such a horse with such heart and soul. No nagging doubts, this book's a winner. -- Martin Chilton * TELEGRAPH ONLINE * Lauren St John's The One Dollar Horse is rare among pony books in setting its dream-come-true story in inner-city London... Writerly, full of equestrian knowledge and rich in character - not least of the horse - this is also a tale of first love, and is a handsome package with deep pink-edged pages. -- Nicolette Jones * THE SUNDAY TIMES * There are many twists and turns but the plot is easy to follow and gripping, I would recommend this book for girls aged from twelve through to adult. The author has a flowing style and an art for bringing her characters to life. * NEWBOOKSMAG * The One Dollar Horse is certain to be huge favourite with readers and will bear comparison with classic horse stories by authors such as Patricia Leitch and K M Peyton. * BOOKS FOR KEEPS *
