Rating: 0 vote(s).


Jayleen lives for the rodeo. She's sure she can be the fastest amateur barrel racer in all of British Columbia, in all of Canada.

Her coach, however, doesn't share this faith. Jayleen finds her heavy-handed coaching style completely unhelpful. In order to excel, Jayleen knows she'll have to find someone to believe in her--so she sets out to do just that.

Cutting It Close is the story of a spirited young woman who decides to take charge of her own destiny.

MARION CROOK has created many lively adventure stories for children and young adults. She lives in British Columbia and has travelled extensively in Canada and the U.S. to research her stories.
