Dark horses : a novel / Susan Mihalic.
Förlag: Scout Press
Resurstyp: Fysiskt material
"A taut and darkly gripping debut novel about a fierce teenaged girl's struggle to reclaim her life. Fifteen-year-old Roan has always known two worlds: inside the horse riding arena, and outside. Both, for as long as she can remember, have been ruled by her father, who demands strict obedience in all aspects of her life. The warped power dynamic of coach and rider extends far beyond the stables, and Roan's relationship with her father has long been incestuous. She has been able to compartmentalize that dark aspect of her life, ruthlessly focusing on her ambitions as a rider heading for the Olympics, just as her father had done. However, the arrival of Will, a new teenage love, brings everything into focus."--
