Pie in the Sky

By: Jane Smiley

BOOK TALK

Abby wants nothing more than to train and ride her beautiful horse, True Blue, but after a bad experience at a horse clinic led by some big time horse trainer, everything changes.  Sophia, who rides Pie in the Sky, an expensive thoroughbred, is humiliated in the clinic and refuses to ride.  So Abby is hired to ride Pie in the Sky and she has to abandon the training of True Blue.   Abby is not pleased with the turn of events and starting high school just adds to the pressure in her life.  Little does she know she will soon meet a horse trainer with unconventional methods who puts True Blue and Pie in the Sky back on the road to becoming winners.
