Not Just a Horse by Shannon Kennedy

Sixteen-year-old Cicely Ellis ‘knows’ her parents never wanted her. They abandoned her at the age of four, going off to new lives without a kid like her. They didn’t leave her homeless. They passed her on to aunts and uncles like a pet or a toy when they were done with it – and her. Cicely ‘knows’ she should be grateful to have a roof over her head; she certainly hears it often enough.

Nobody understands the passion she has for horses, or the dream to be a world-famous, international equestrian star. So, Cicely works at Salmon Pond Stable after school and on weekends, watering, mucking, cleaning tack, grooming, saddling – performing any horsey chore just to have the chance to ‘catch’ a ride on the horses. This makes her a ‘catch rider’ and causes some of the regular students to consider her their personal groom or servant or lackey. When the woman who owns Pallas Athena, the ‘horse of Cicely’s heart’ moves the Paint mare to Shamrock Stable, she goes too.

Now, Cicely has new things to learn. They don’t all have to do with horses or riding, but also the secret of the parents who left her behind years ago. Everything comes with a price, and no one rides for “free” in this world, but will the cost she pays be too high?

The Endurance by Nathan Smith

With a clever enough plan, one man (or a lad of sixteen years) could depose a pirate captain.

While Captain Rodriguez de Medina and his pirate crew are on the beach partying, the three young prisoners in the brig of his ship, the San Paulo, are plotting. Their plan: steal the ship, steal the infamous reputation of Rodriguez de Medina, steal his plan to capture the gold laden Man-of-War, the Endurance.

The three adolescents steal the San Paulo, but manning a ship with three sets of hands is one thing—attacking the Endurance is a whole new beast. But James, the leader of the pack, has a plan. He will rely on the feared reputation of Captain Rodriguez. Every ship that has faced Captain Rodriguez in the past eight months has surrendered without a fight. This is the crux of James’ plan. No one, including the Endurance, knows the San Paulo was commandeered by three ruffians. They’re going to impersonate Rodriguez and the Endurance will surrender her treasure. Or so James hopes.
