About the Book

Racing Manhattan

In a cheering and relatable story of adversity overcome, an outcast teen coaxes a defiant Thoroughbred back into the thrill of competition.
 
Alone in the world, Jay Barton is a teenage misfit with nothing much going for her besides an extraordinary talent for understanding racehorses and riding them like a pro. When, in a desperate attempt to escape her shifty, opportunistic uncle, she leaves home to work in a racing stable, Jay forms a bond with a beautiful gray mare named Manhattan --- brilliant, misunderstood, dangerous and heading for racing's scrap heap. Recognizing a fellow misfit, Jay fights to give Manhattan one last opportunity to show that she’s the champion she was born to be. Together they face a world of prejudice and cruelty, fighting back the only way they know how --- by becoming the best.
 
Audiobook available, narrated by Stina Nielsen.
