In your own words, what was the beginning of the book. It was about winning the derby. Told how Casper was named after the horses. Described her great love for all the horses.
What motivates a given character’s actions? Casper joins the society to help her family, so they wouldn't lose everything. She did what she had to and this reaches out to readers because they become emotionally connected with her.
What I liked. I liked everything about the book. The characters were strong and the plot captured my attention.
Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author.
