Well-written with a tight plot and interesting characters. Troubled Bonnie is really a brat of the first order. Ruth Caradon has issues of her own that she thought were in the past, but dealing with Bonnie brings them back. The battle of wills was interesting to watch as Bonnie acted on emotion and Caradon worked mostly on gut instinct. The ending was quite a surprise. Another great read by Alan Davidson.
*Many thanks to Straw Hat for providing me with a review copy. Please see disclaimer page on my blog.
Bonnie Wyndham has been expelled from her last three schools for her unruly behavior. Now, she is given the opportunity of a lifetime to attend Almonside, a school with a top notch riding program. Bonnie may struggle in the classroom and among her peers, but she excels at riding.
In the past Bonnie has been able to get her way with teachers and students through her unpleasant and domineering attitude, but she has never met anyone like Ms. Ruth Caradon, her soft-spoken riding instructor. Ms. Caradon refuses to acknowledge Bonnie's unpleasantness, which infuriates Bonnie all the more. The two stubborn, yet talented riders are about to go head-to-head in an important competition, but who will learn the bigger lesson, student or instructor?
Young readers will be able to identify with Bonnie's schoolmates as they are forced to deal with Bonnie's selfish and spoiled mannerisms. However, when Ms. Caradon's true motives are revealed, reader's will find themselves cheering for Bonnie as she attempts to defeat Ms. Caradon and win the Lazard Trophy.
Lessons of compassion, honesty and second chances are found throughout the story as several lives are enhanced by the challenges and life lessons they are confronted with.
I recommend picking up a copy of Queen Rider.
