Kids’ Club Review by Keya: The Glory

The Glory, by Lauren St John (Teen Fiction)

A Girl on the Run from the Law:
Alexandra Blakewood has everything any teenager could wish for, apart from the horse she’d love, but she won’t stop getting into trouble. Sent to a boot camp, she dreams of escaping. It seems impossible until she’s told about a 1,200 mile horse race across the American West…

A Boy on a Mission to Save a Life:
Will Greyton was the star student at his high school until his father was laid off. Now Will works at a burger joint. When his dad falls ill, it seems things can’t get any worse. An operation will save him, but they can’t pay for it. Then Will hears about The Glory, a deadly endurance race with a $250,000 purse, open to any rider daring enough to attempt it…

Who will win? Will Alex and Will both get what they want? There’s only one way to find out…

(Recommended for people 11 years and above.)
