Product description

A dizzying bareback ride that’ll whisk you from Ireland to Italy – and who knows where else? Anything is possible if you dare to dream of greatness! Could you win a wild horse race? Compete in X Factor? Or go to space? We bet you’re thinking ‘no chance’. But what if you thought ‘yes chance’? When Minty meets loner Ned – hardly speaks, rides like a whirlwind – it’s the start of a headlong gallop into a crazy, wild, electrifying future. One that takes Minty all the way from Dublin to Siena in Italy, with its legendary Palio bareback horse race… She’ll learn to ride. She’ll learn to find hope in the world. Most of all, she’ll learn: always bet on yourself. Why stack the dice the wrong way?

  • A spine-tingling and exhilarating novel about horses, self-belief and life
  • By the bestselling author of Back to Blackbrick and The Apple Tart of Hope
  • Uplifting message about looking for the best in yourself and the world
  • Sarah Moore Fitzgerald was shortlisted for the 2015 Waterstones Prize
