Moving from a harsh West Belfast estate to the glamour of the show jumping ring, Taking Flight is a fast-paced story of courage overcoming jealousy. The only riding fifteen year-old Declan has ever done is joyriding. When he's forced to stay with his snobby cousin 'Princess' Vicky, he's shocked to find himself falling in love with horses. Vicky would do anything to keep this grubby hood away from her precious showjumper, Flight. Populated with courageous and vibrant characters, Taking Flight is a brilliant debut from an exciting new young adult writer.
