Ever since Dusty's mom died, life has been rough. Dusty's dad is remote and angry, and a car accident has permanently injured Dusty's back. No matter how much support her classmates in high school offer, nothing can bring back the happy family life she remembers.
Now Dusty is facing another loss. Her horse, Tazz, has become crippled and will be put down. But one night, a curiously pale boy appears in the barn and rides away on Tazz. When Dusty learns that a high school boy has been killed recently, she is determined to discover the connection between the boy's death, her father's rage, and the figure who took Tazz away.
In Sky Rider, the ALA award-winning author of Toughing It creates a supernatural thriller that will hold the attention of even the most reluctant reader. Narrator Christina Moore's performance captures the conflicting emotions that swirl through Dusty as she searches for the truth.
