Baker & Taylor
While Christina reconsiders veterinary medicine after she and Wonder's Star's tragic accident at Belmont, her cousin, Melanie, resumes her dreams of becoming a jockey when she rides a new horse and betrays Christina's trust.


Now that high school is behind them, will Christina and Melanie be able to make the right choices about their futures and still remain friends?

They're out of school and Christina and Melanie are taking a year off to make some big decisions. Christina is torn between the exciting life of a jockey and working as a vet, helping the horses she loves. And then there is her horse, Wonder's Star. After all their hard work, can Christina really leave the track – and Star – behind?

Melanie's future as a jockey seems clear. But her relationships with the people she loves – especially Christina – are less certain. Christina accuses her cousin of putting her career above everything – and everybody. How can Melanie prove that the people she loves comes first?
