Fallen Star (Thoroughbred, Bk. 43) : While visiting a track in New York, Christina Reese meets Cindy Blake, the well-known jockey and long-lost member of the Whitebrook family. Cindy has been plagued with shoulder problems throughout her racing career, and Christina is thrilled when her newly found relative accepts an invitation to come to Whitebrook to rest and heal. But Cindy isn't the mentor Christina hoped she'd be. Bitter about racing, Cindy offers Christina little encouragement or inspiration. Christina's disappointment, however, is soon overshadowed when her beloved horse, Star, falls sick with a deadly virus. Yet to her surprise, she isn't the only one willing to fight for Star's life. Cindy is there, too, helping her nurse her beloved colt. Looking beyond her dreams, Christina wouldn't mind if Star never raced again - she just wants him to live! Ages 8 to 12.
