Book Description

March 15 1995 Golden Filly (Book 10)
After an intense near-death experience, Triple Crown winner Trish Evanston battles to recover from her tragic racing accident. The pain is agonizing, but it isn't enough to keep her mind off her injured filly, Firefly--or off the culprit who continues to send her venomous threats.

Product Details


Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 6 Up-Trish's life does not lack excitement-just believability. Pursued by a stalker whom she has nicknamed "The Jerk," this high school senior and professional jockey manages to win a few races, go to the prom with the star quarterback, save herself from the stalker, and graduate. Although the story begins with a near-fatal attempt on her life, landing her in the hospital, any suspense or tension created by this incident is not sustained. The book skips from one end of the country to the other. So many characters and horses drift in and out of the pages that it's difficult to become intrigued by any of them. The settings-whether the track, the hospital, or any other place-never take root. Trish's monologues with God are also unconvincing and awkward. With its choppy, predictable plot and superficial characters, this mystery really misses the winner's circle.
