Staff Pick: The Scorpio Races

The Scorpio Races
by Maggie Stiefvater

I LOVED this book, and if you have a chance to listen to it on audio it’s a real treat! This young adult novel is told from the perspective of its two main characters: Sean, a champion horse racer and horse whisperer and Puck, who becomes the first girl ever to race in the annual Scorpio Races. There’s a twist to what normally would be a traditional horse tale, and it is that these horses are a mythological breed of man-eating water horses called the capaill uisce. A beautiful story with poetically descriptive words & memorable characters….this is one that all ages will enjoy & remember for years to come. And watch for a possible movie – Warner Brothers purchased the film rights for this book!

We have 3 print copies & 1 eAudio.
