Format: Mass Market Paperback
I rate "Winning" 4 stars becuase it had me interested very well. I loved reading what happened next to see if Gary got better or worst. It was very creative to have a "jock" football player get paralyzed and try to get back to recovery. This book was a change because usually I read all horse books. I think that the author should make another book, like Winning 2 to see if Gary fully recovers. I think that would be so interesting and neat. I think that the characters were creative, I especially liked Mrs. Treer because she was very kind and caring. She also encouraged Gary back to recovery. The reason I didn't rate it a five because there was some "naughty" words in it, which I didn't think was very professional or appropiate. Well thats my review. You will like this book!
