Rebecca Elizabeth Bowen lives for junior rodeo competitions. On her horse, Pearl, she has won belt buckles and is eyeing the all-around cowgirl saddle now that she’s in high school. Anything is better than being at school where math is too hard and everything but art class sucks. Before ninth grade ends, her parents deliver the worst news times two: her mom is pregnant and they are moving. If she doesn’t win this season, her championship dreams may never come true.
