The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls
Thea Atwell is the headstrong 15-year-old at the center of Anton DiSclafani's sparkling debut novel, The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls. She's been exiled from her family's 1,000-acre Florida farm to an equestrienne boarding school in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, after a family drama she is at the center of decimates the life they knew. DiSclafani's transporting prose recalls that uneasy time at the brink of adulthood, and reminds us that even the most protective parents can't keep the world at bay.
