Both 10-year old girls are fierce competitors and their archrival Cassie challenges them in the district-jumping contest. But this is only the beginning of a challenge to both Georgina and to Meghan. Lives are at risk Meghan finds, escaping her kidnappers in a ride that is worse than anything she has ever experienced and is more challenging than any jumping contest. Riding in darkness in a fierce thunderstorm is almost beyond her ability, but if she doesn’t find help people will be lost.
