|About the Book|
After relocating from a bustling metropolis in Miami to laidback Milltown in Central Florida, twelve-year-old Laurie Lambkin finds herself thrust into a completely different environment where horses and riding competitions are a way of life. Milltown may be small, but she soon discovers that small towns oftentimes harbor big secrets. Her budding friendship with young Chuck Mallory evolves into a secret mentoring program, as he teaches her all about horses and riding competitions. Troubles brew, rivalries surface and jealousy reigns when a surly young boy named Freddy Feingold appears on the scene, and then complications arise when young Tiffany Mallory gets involved. Follow Laurie and Chuck as they set out to expose the shadiest of deeds from the most unlikely suspects in Milltown, and watch Laurie discover just how smelly boys can be.
