When the farm truck breaks down and there's no money to pay for repairs, Faye's grandmother starts talking about selling the farm. So Faye does the unthinkable. She agrees to sell Robin, her pony. Robin's new owner, Nicole, keeps pestering Faye to divulge her "secret" to make Robin jump. Maybe there's a time when winning means losing the best partner you've ever had. Fans of The Secret Pony will be delighted by this companion novel about Kirsty's friend Faye. Readers new to Julie White are sure to become fans of the author's perfectly evoked world of young riders—and its complicated friendships.

Julie White lives on a horse farm in Armstrong, British Columbia. She rides everyday and competes in jumping classes at horse shows, often against her two grown daughters.
