Product Description

Fresh on the heels of Michelle Payne’s historic Melbourne Cup win, comes a blockbuster Australian story about a Queensland girl and the ‘race that stops a nation’ . . .

Tully Athens has always dreamed of following in the footsteps of her hero Michelle Payne. Of living up to the Athens name and becoming the third generation of women from her family to rule the track. But Tully’s never been sure she’s got the nerve, and when her mother is killed in a horse racing accident, her whole world is shattered.

Six months later, in the heat of a Queensland summer, sixteen-year-old Tully is ready to face her fears. But getting back in the saddle leads to a whole lot more than she bargained for, with an out of control crush on the boy from their rival thoroughbred farm – the gorgeous but cocky larrikin Brandon Weston – and a forgotten filly with stardom in her eyes . . .

When faced with the most difficult decision of her life, will Tully choose to train and race her new filly in Melbourne? Or will she sacrifice it all to fight for love on the land that feeds her soul?

It’s only when tragedy rips everything from her that Tully finds a strength and courage she never knew she had, in this action-packed novel of passion, adventure and determination.

RACE GIRL is the highly anticipated third book of The Go Girls Chronicles – bestselling stories of gutsy girls in action sports, by Leigh Hutton!

Leigh has a knack for making you feel like you are there amongst it, in the middle of the action with her characters. The on track descriptions in this book are brilliant â" you really do feel as if you are riding the horses â" I could give five stars just for the Race Scenes. You find yourself tearing through the words, like a horse tearing up the turf as it thunders down the track.

We meet Tully Athens out on her familyâ(tm)s farm in rural Queensland. After the tragic death of Tullyâ(tm)s mother in a horse racing accident the familyâ(tm)s farm has fallen on hard times and is wasting away. I found Tully immediately likeable. The then Fifteen-year-old is struggling to cope with her motherâ(tm)s death. She is afraid to get back on a horse after the accident, but her soul is missing riding as much as it is missing her mother. After finally getting the courage to mount up again she finds herself riding, then racing side by side with a mysterious âaehotâ boy who can really ride. The fun begins when she finds out the stranger is in fact Brandon Weston the son of her families biggest rival. Ah forbidden love my favorite.

This the third installment of the Go Girl Chronicles doesnâ(tm)t disappoint, as with the previous two books we get; drama, action, romance, a strong female protagonist, beautiful horses, studly men, lessons learnt, dreams followed and inner strength found.

There are even nods to Jump Girl, Rev Girl and next up, Surf Girl â" cracked me up, especially when Clover pops up in the same hospital room as Tully.

We go on to see Tully develop into a loving and caring, yet strong and determined young woman of eighteen. We see her fight for the things she loves and make her mark on the world.

Race Girl is the third installment of the Go Girl Chronicles, and it doesn't disappoint.

Race Girl is a highly emotional book that made me cry as well as cheer with joy, and considering that I have been experiencing genre burnout with paranormal lately that a good Aussie Read was just what I needed.

After Tully's mother tragically dies in a horse race, Tully has a lot of responsibility to shoulder, which I think is too much for someone as young as her to have to take on, her father is slipping away and into debt, the next door neighbor is trying to take their farm, and Tully is trying to make money at MC Donalds and follow her dream of becoming a female jockey, against her fathers wishes.

The whole Go Girl Chronicles are about young women overcoming odds to follow their life long dream. each book is somewhat linked with cameo appearances from characters from the earlier books but you are able to read them out of order. I absolutely love this series not only is it Aussie made, but the Author Leigh Hutton is down to earth and contributes from every sale of her books to charity.

There are a lot of Australian rural books out their but not too many based in the Y.A genre. Race Girl features a romance plot as well but it is kept family friendly so younger readers can enjoy with the lightness and not focusing on sex.

Tully is an amazing girl and role model for girls to look up to and I really hope this series continues.

I highly recommend this Aussie read and at 6.99 on Amazon it is well worth the read for young and old, horse lovers and Melbourne cup lovers. This thrill ride is for you.

Leigh Hutton has proven herself once again as a perfect writer for the coming of age stories full of heroism, love, loss, triumph and of course adventure.

In Race Girl,the third book in the Go Girls Chronichles, we meet Tully. A character that is obviously very close to the author's heart, Tully has recenly had her earth shattered around her when her mother suddenly passes during a tragic racing accident. Left to pick up the peices of her life, Tully has to take on some very grown up roles and make some very adult decisions to help to keep their property Avalon Downs from left to ruin or be sold off the the horrible Weston family while her father empties a bottle every night. This doesn't shake a strong girl like Tully, she just sets her sights and knows just what she needs to do. That is when she meets the young horse of her dreams, Dhalia. Dhalia needed a little saving at first but little did Tully know just how much this horse would save her own life, and help her build it back up.

Through the great love story, the trechourous neighbours, the wonderful friends and family she has, Tully takes on the world. Heck, she may even concur it!

This book took me through the amazing life of these riders and racers, as well as a love for a horse that knows no bounds. Truly a great read, you should definitely pick this one up at your local book store or online. Today, go right now. You will thank me later.
