Mallory De Witt English 6 Book Report The book I read was The Thoroughbred by Joanna Campbell. The book is fiction and was made in Daniel Weiss Associates Inc.

But Samantha is really worried about Pride because he needs to have a week off of working and all the races are just a week apart. So now something bad might be coming up.

Unformatted text preview: Pride was ever in. So this is one of the biggest events in the whole book because if Pride werent in the race he wouldnt have made it into the Preakness Stakes. The main character in the book is Samantha. She is a very nice person. She also loves horses a lot, and trains them. She will always stand up for what she believes in. Samantha will help out her friends, family and horses. Samantha is a very calm and relaxed person. She is not a jumping person like others. Everyone really likes her as a friend.

Also there are a lot of things younger kids might not know about. Well if you have been riding for a while like me for 5 1\2 years you could read it if you were younger. But over all this is a good book for 7 th graders and up....
