Publisher's Summary

Colt Vittorio wants nothing more than to be a normal kid. However, spina bifida confines him to a wheelchair. When he learns horseback riding through a handicapped-outreach program, he begins to feel like any other kid. Colt feels tall, strong, and powerful, even though any fall - even a hard gallop - could kill him.

Through the pleasure of the speed, height, and grace that only a horse can give, Colt begins to mature, pushing his body further than he ever thought it could go and becoming more to his new step-family and the world in general than a "crippled kid".

Edgar Award-winning author Nancy Springer has created a moving story of a young boy's struggle to be an ordinary kid. Colt won the Joan Fassler Memorial Book Award from the Association for the Care of Children's Health.
