The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater

Maggie Stiefvater is my favorite Young Adult author, and one of my favorite authors, period. The Scorpio Races takes place on a small island (probably near Ireland). Every fall, fierce, demonic horses rise from the sea and the men of the island capture and race them. One year everything changes when a girl named Puck, orphaned by the horses, decides to risk everything to save her family’s home, and enters the race riding her own pony. Under the tutelage of seasoned racer Sean Kendrick, Puck learns about a whole other side of her island, and herself. Stiefavter is a master wordsmith; I read her books repeatedly because the beauty of her sentences has me in awe every time. This book, in particular, is stunning. If you have a teen, this is the perfect fall book for them. I hold a deep, unconditional love for The Scorpio Races. Ages 8+
