Centaur Rising

by Jane Yolen
Centaur Rising - Jane Yolen N/A

When a centaur foal is born at Arianne's horse farm, her family must bond together to conceal this amazing secret.

One night during the Perseid meteor shower, Arianne thinks she sees a shooting star land in the fields surrounding her family’s horse farm. About a year later, one of their horses gives birth to a baby centaur. The family has enough attention already, as Arianne’s six-year-old brother was born with birth defects caused by an experimental drug — the last thing they need is more scrutiny. But their clients soon start growing suspicious. Just how long is it possible to keep a secret? And what will happen if the world finds out?

At a time when so many novels are set in other worlds, Jane Yolen imagines what it would be like if a creature from another world came to ours in this thoughtful, imaginative novel.
