    Well... I'm gonna read it. But then, I've also read one Gossip Girl, all the Princess Diaries, and all the Twilight books. Can I use the excuse that I teach high school English? Please?

    Doesn't everyone remove the bit and then snap the lead rope to the cheek piece?

    I thought that was the new fad...

    Because clearly, you are going to get your scarf caught on something and it will break your neck! I wish I would have known that before I started riding forty years ago.

    The synopsis did not really sound all that appealing, I have to say.

    A billionaire's daughter? hmm. Plot sounds pretty contrived.

    Jilly Cooper's Riders will never be topped, but then it's not a kids book, and it's about show jumping.

    OGM hangs head and sheepishly admits that she wants to read it too..... I am sure it won't replace The Show Gypsies or Riders but I will read anything horsey!

    So funny, me and my mom (both writers, and she's published a few young adult novels) have seriously thought of writing a series set in the A circuit for years now. Looks like they beat us to it! It looks awful and I agree the cover is horrendous, but I'm not going to lie, I'll probably read it LOL!

    I hope they were fake daffodils in the jumps. Because they don't bloom in summer. Just sayin'.

    Product placement anyone? That will date the book faster than anything.

    Yes they were, I made it through one paragraph.

    Recently my benchmark for this type of book is The Perfect Distance. I don't think Last Junior Year or Dark Horse had quite the same material.

    Yeah that was pretty bad. And I SO love trashy horse books. I'm kind of disappointed.

    And Catherine Hapka is an experienced children's/YA author. Why anyone felt the need to have Georgina Bloomberg's name above hers, I have no idea....
