A Star Is Born by Sable Hamilton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received this from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
A Star Is Born is a quick, enjoyable read that is written for young adults, but will be enjoyed by anyone who likes horses.
Stardust Stables is a training facility for teenage stunt riders and horses to be used in the entertainment industry. Stunt riding requires perseverance, patience, hours of training and skill. Kami was recruited for her horse riding accomplishments, but is she up to the task? She is the new girl and is required to do the grunt work which includes mucking stalls...not exactly glamorous work. Kami has an audition to be a stunt double for a movie. Has she mastered the techniques needed for the role?
Kami is a nice, young girl who loves horses and riding. She is not afraid of hard work and is willing to help others. I, as the reader, was able to see Kami go from nervous and homesick to confident and well trained. What an interesting look at working stables, stunt riding and the movie industry. I would definitely recommend it.
