I liked this a lot despite it dragging between middle and end somewhat with the endless descriptions of show jumping competitions (but hats off to Lattey, her writing style kept me reading through them rather than skipping pages, which is quite an achievement) and despite some very questionable details around Jay's characterisation as a 'Brit'. (For the record: British girls are seldom prissy and pretty much all utterly used to rubbish Victorian plumbing where the water suddenly runs cold and 99 [...]
Clearwater Bay #1 ReviewIt took me several chapters to get into the story, but I am happy I did. Some of the language was different than what I am used to, which made me pay attention. The slang bogged me down, but after awhile it became more familiar and easier to read. Towards the end of the book the characters were fully developed and it felt like I was living life with them. I found myself vested in the story and I couldn't wait to see what happened next. I love a good ending and this one do [...]
I wish would let me choose 4.5 stars so I can leave half a star in case Clearwater Bay 2 is even better than Clearwater Bay 1.I enjoyed this book very much; it took me back to my teenage years.The characters are realistic, the NZ horse scene was entertaining and I am now impatiently waiting for 'Against the clock' to be released in April.I would recommend this book for YA readers, and even adults, who enjoy 'pony books'.
I've enjoyed reading Flying Changes, about a girl whose life changes drastically. Jay grew up in England. Her mum has died so she goes to New Zealand to live with the father she has not seen since she was four - she's now fourteen. The bribe to get her here was the promise of a pony of her own. The first half of the book is occupied with Jay getting used to the wild, open countryside, the beach and the people, her gruff father included. Cooking and housekeeping are not his strong points. Well, t [...]
Argh! I seriously wish I had discovered Kate Lattey like 5 years from now - I've now read all she has out so far and am going to go crazy waiting for the next! The Clearwater bay series is aimed a bit younger than the 2 Dream books, but that doesn't make it any less of an awesome read. She's excellent with characters - especially w/ YA I usually find that the main character has something that REALLY annoys me, but so far that has happened with Lattey's books. And her horses are as well-developed [...]
Super cool book for the avid horse lover!
