Staff Pick

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tessa has major attitude and an impossible dream—not a greatcombination for success. But she believes that fate has delivered the ungainly horse Buffoon to her, and Tessa is determined never to be separated from him. What's more, she intends to one day become a jockey and ride Buffoon in the Grand National. But how can a girl with a violent temper and a “can't do” philosophy gain the physical strength, courage, and money needed to become a jockey—especially when her stepfather would like nothing better than to see her fail? Determination and grit may not be enough—but Tessa's not going to let go without giving it her all.

Mistybu, March 5, 2007 (view all comments by Mistybu)
Tessa is a very rude uncoroprative girl that shares a special bond with a ugly horse called buffoon. Her step father is the worst you could have he hates Tessa and Tessa hates him. Tessa's ambition is to be a jockey and she meets a jocky called Tom. Tom is the only one Tessa can really trust apart from Buffoon. I think this book is brilliant for anyone who loves horses. I have thoroughtly enjoyed it and asked mum to by it for my library, but she cannot get it.
