Jess received this book as part of her birthday presents. The book is set in central Florida, it follows the journey of Roz who is a twelve-year-old, horse mad girl. She is determined to make it to the top of the equestrian world but her family think riding horses is a sport that Black people just don’t do.
This is a story about determination to succeed and this is the story of her fight to prove she can be whatever she wants.
This is Jess’s review of the book:
Clip – Clop Chronicles is about a black girl called Roz age 12 whose dream is to be a horse rider. She tries to earn money to go to horse riding lessons by mowing other people’s lawns but in a storm things turn against her and a tree comes down on her lawn mower and the engine took most of the damage but luck had it that her mum and dad were nice and paid half of what she needed and she had enough now to take riding lessons.
She goes thru 1 teacher before she finely finds the right teacher to teach her. Her teachers name is Ms Mae, and she is a nice teacher and kind to all of her student’s but I think she liked Roz best.
It is a good book and there are no pictures so it gets you to use your imagination I have learnt that bad things happens but so do good things like Roz’s lawn mower broke but she when horse riding I think children from age 8 up would like it
I would give the book:
