Ride: Kit Meets Covington by Bobbi JG Weiss (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Saturday, Dec 30, 2017 at 11:21am

Trying to move on from her mother’s death and afraid of riding after a bad fall, fourteen-year-old Kit Bridges doesn’t quite know what to expect when her father takes a position at The Covington Academy, a prestigious boarding school in England. Things are looking up when Kit meets her cool, possibly secretly royal new roommate, Anya, and the boys of Covington, like Will, with their charming accents. But she hadn’t anticipated such a strict headmistress as Lady Covington. Or the expectation that every student be a rider. While navigating new friendships, romances, Kit needs to figure out whether she’s ready to get back in the saddle. And at the end of the day, it’s hard to tell who will be more changed by her arrival — The Covington Academy or Kit herself.

I liked the book Ride because it was very detailed and you could envision everything in your head while you were reading it. It was a little hard to follow the different events throughout the book and I felt the ending was very sudden. It was an interesting read, once I got into it, but it took me a while to start reading. I would recommend Ride to anyone who likes books about horses.
