Riding Chance

Riding Chance

by Christine Kendall

Troy is a kid with a passion. And dreams. And a desire to do the right thing. But after taking a wrong turn in life, he is forced to endure something that's worse than any juvenile detention center he can imagine: He is sentenced to the local city stables, where he's made to take care of horses. The greatest punishment for Troy has been trying to make sense of things since his mom died. Then, through his work with the horses, he discovers a sport he's never even heard of before: polo!



Laced with humor and beating with heartache, this novel will grip readers, pull them in quickly, and take them on an unforgettable ride. Set in the present day, Christine Kendall's stunning debut novel brings readers face-to-face with the challenges of a loving family who turn hardships into triumphs.
