Racing Savannah is another story set in the Hundred Oaks community. I think this one has to be my favourite out of the whole series so far.
Instead of sports like football and softball, this time it's about horses. As a child, I've always loved reading about horses and I've never really read something about it in YA books. The story was cute and sweet and I loved how it went. Jack was the perfect gentleman and he tries so hard to stand up for Savannah. There were some things that he had to get pass and I'm glad to see him learn to stand up for himself and for those that he loves. Savannah also had some growing up to do and she's learned to work hard to make something better for herself. Other than that, the horses were definitely the highlight of the entire book.
Despite being just a cute romantic story, this story has a good moral. It teaches you that no matter what kind of background you have, you can always work hard to achieve something better for yourself. Of course, if you're just here for the cute story, this one won't disappoint!
