Tessa believes fate has delivered Buffoon to her, and she's determined never to be parted from him More than that, she vows that one day she will race him in the Grand National. But how can a rebellious, hot-tempered girl - who's repeatedly been kicked out of boarding school and even laded in jail - acquire the strength and courage, not to mention the money, needed to become a jockey?
