Dragonsdale: Riding the Storm by Salamanda Drake

At Dragonsdale, where riding is the most important thing in the world, there's trouble ahead for best friends Cara and Breena, and their beloved dragons. Poor Breena. When her show dragon, Moonflight, is injured, it looks like time will run out for the pair to qualify for the Island Championship. Cara and her dragon, Sky, however, have never looked better, and although she misses her friend at her side, winning means so much. But, both Breena and Cara fail to notice their spiteful rival, Hortense, making mischief behind their backs. It's only a matter of time before their friendship is put to the ultimate test - even if it means braving the wild seas off the Isles of Bresal.
