    6. I was not sure if I would enjoy this book but I am so happy to say that not only did I enjoy this book but the characters have stayed with me even after reading I did not think I would enjoy reading a coming of age story about a young, gay man but I loved it I am hoping that Ms Pagones writes about this unforgettable character Simon is a young man of courage and insight The vivid writing style of the author brought the characters and the setting to life for me I loved this book I hope desperate [...]

    11. More like 3, but I want to encourage the author to continue writing This actually was pretty good I think the author could do with a slightly heavier hand editing there s a lot of unnecessary repetition mainly w song names and the narrator s horse that had to be put down and some awkward sentence construction grammar But the bones are good, and I think as she writes , the flow of the narrative will get better I do like that the narrator is a male, and that it s mostly set in the eventing world.

    13. A well rounded storyRiding English is almost completely foreign to me But this book was still interesting to me, having strong characters in it So it wasn t completely about horses and competition there were relationships to follow Even though I had interrupted reading times, I was able to return to the story and remember where the characters belonged.

    14. Not my type of storyAt first look I thought this would be an interesting book since I do like horses But the sexual references were a but to much for me.

    15. Really well written This book reminded me of the Killers, so I ended up adding some of their songs to my spotify playlist Total blast from the past
