In the shade of the Giant’s Throne Mountain, and on the coast of the Indian Ocean, Port St. Christopher is home to Apley Towers; a riding school for girls and boys, young or old, who learn what it means to be a true horse rider. Angela has got herself a secret admirer all thanks to Kaela playing the stable cupid. But for both girls, this has disastrous consequences: Kaela has become too wrapped up in the excitement to see the stressful decisions her friend is facing. Will Kaela’s meddling pay off in the end? It’s time for Angela to stop trying to please others and start thinking about herself.
Apley Towers is a continuing twelve book horse and pony series set in South Africa. These coming of age stories have a strong focus on close friendships and are ideal for readers aged 11+. Shortlisted for the People’s Book Prize 2017.
