Synopsis

Grounded by Sheena Wilkinson

Declan loves Seaneen, but his ambition to work at a top showjumping yard is stronger than anything he's ever felt before. So when Declan is offered his dream job in Germany, he should be thrilled. There's nothing for him at home but dark history he'd rather forget. But he's terrified: leaving Seaneen's harder than he expected; troubled hood Cian won't leave him alone, and when he finds a traumatised horse in a derelict barn, he knows he has to help her. No matter how scared he is. Grounded is a gripping story of courage, fear, despair and joy by the award-winning author of Taking Flight.

Reviews

'Sheena Wilkinson's first, Taking Flight, is one of the best Young Adult books I've read - and the sequel Grounded is even better.

I'd recommend Grounded and taking Flight to absolutely any reader, and I can't wait to see what Sheena Wilkinson comes up with next. She reminds me of K M Peyton, one of the most successful children's writers of our time.'

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
