Direct any middle- or high-schooler who loves horses to this book for a unique story about flesh-eating stallions who spend most of their time in the ocean but emerge once a year to race along the beach. The islanders' life is shaped by these creatures and annual races. I liked the two main characters, how the author alternated between their voices, and imagining a community of rural folk living along side these violent yet loved creatures.
