Waiting on Wednesday (6): Take The Reins


Take the Reins by Jessica Burkhart
Coming out January 27, 2009

   When Sasha Silver and her horse, Charm, arrive on the campus of the elite Canterwood Crest Academy, Sasha knows that she's in trouble. She's not exactly opened with welcome arms. One group of girls in particular is used to being the best, the brightest, and the prettiest on the team, and when Sasha shows her skills in the arena, the girls' claws come out.
  Sasha is determined to prove she belongs at Canterwood. Will she rise to the occasion and make the advanced riding team by the end of her first semester? Or will the pressure send Sasha packing?

Oh my goodness, it's as if this book were made for me, about all the things I find interesting to read about: horses, competition, boarding school.....it sounds absolutely amazing. I can't wait to read it! (:

PS--I love the cover, don't you? The girl's outfit is gorgeous and the horse is so cute...It all looks so professional and, well, perfect.

My daughter absolutely loves horses and would be thrilled if I got this book for her. Right now, her and I together are finishing Steve O'Brien's "Elijah's Coin." I am loving this book. Not only is it entertaining, has a great story, but also has a powerful message about success in life. I think we both will benefit a lot from it.
