Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fourteen-year-old Cam O’Mara is a dedicated skateboarder, and not at all interested in carrying on the family tradition of champion bull-riding. But when his older brother Ben comes back from a tour in Iraq partially paralyzed, Cam knows he needs to find a way to help out. So he does what any O’Mara would do—he enters a contest to ride Ugly, a monstrous, 1,600-pound bull whom no one’s ever ridden for the requisite eight seconds. Cam will need every ounce of his courage, strength, and self-belief, but if he succeeds, he’ll win $15,000—money that could help his depressed and rehabilitating brother pull his life back together.

Synopsis:

BULL RIDER by Suzanne Morgan Williams is the story of one family's test of loyalty and hope in the face of tremendous trials.
