Young Adult Contemporary

Three weeks after her boyfriend of eighteen months dumps her, high school senior and queen bee, Penny Wilson, declares she is over said boyfriend and is ready to move on. But life without her ex is more difficult than repeating a few affirmations. She has been pushed to the very edge of the “popular kids” social ladder. To make matters worse, her dad announces he’s hired boot-clad, Wrangler wearing, calf-roper Ty Jackson to work on their English horse farm. Curly blonde hair and six pack abs aside, he was a rodeo team bottom-runger and no way was she going to let him in her social circle.

And as if having cowboy Ty around is not bad enough, he garners her father’s attention on the first day. Something she has been unable to do since she lost her mother to cancer two years ago.

The “Annie,” a charity horse show named after her mom, is weeks away. Although this show does not count for end of year points, it is the most important show to Penny and one she’s bombed in the stadium jumping portion every year. Ty convinces her he can teach her to connect deeper with her horse and settle her nerves in the show arena. As they work together Penny discovers that while she’s riding better being around Ty does nothing to settle her nerves. Will she discover that there more important things than being in the popular crowd? Will she rekindle a relationship with her dad?
