The Scorpio Races, by Maggie Stiefvater
Barnes & Noble
It happens at the start of every November: the Scorpio Races. Riders attempt to keep hold of their water horses long enough to make it to the finish line. Some riders live. Others die.
At age nineteen, Sean Kendrick is the returning champion. He is a young man of few words, and if he has any fears, he keeps them buried deep, where no one else can see them.
Puck Connolly is different. She never meant to ride in the Scorpio Races. But fate hasn’t given her much of a chance. So she enters the competition — the first girl ever to do so. She is in no way prepared for what is going to happen.
WOW. I LOVE this book! I listened to the audiobook and the characters drew me in right from the beginning. The actors were spot on.
I wasn't a fan of the Shiver trilogy, so I put off reading this book. Mistake! I should have read it earlier. Puck is a kick-ass female lead and Sean is my new book boyfriend.
