Alexandra Anderson is on the run from the law.

When the thirteen-year-old orphan can run no further, she collapses at the gates of the prestigious racing and breeding farm, North Oak. Horse racing strikes a deep chord in her. She hears a higher calling in the jingle jangle of bit and stirrup and in the thunder of hooves on the turn for home. It tells her she has a place in the world. But when the racing headlines find her on the front of every sports page, she realizes North Oak is no longer a safe haven.
Money can't buy love, but it just might secure Alex's future.

Will everyone at North Oak still want to offer her a home when they learn of her unspeakable crime?

On the heels of Joanna Campbell's beloved Thoroughbred Series, and Walter Farley's Black Stallion, comes a brand new young adult horse racing series that will sweep you away like a runaway Thoroughbred.

Too melodramatic to be entirely believable. The flashbacks make it a little hard to follow at first. The author was familiar enough with horses and racing to represent them fairly well. However, I failed to develop any great empathy for the characters. Bottom line, this was a decent free read but it didn't impress me enough to pay for the rest of the series.

She is on the run from a crime she committed and she ends up in front of the ranch. She finds a place she belongs and she loves racing. Soon she is on the front pages of the racing times. Will they still want to know.once they know her crimes? See if they can I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Born to Run: North Oak #1 by Ann Hunter is a very poignant and realistic look at what happens to children accused of murder in the Juvenile Justice System. This story was an incredible book that portrays a young girl’s fear of the justice system and her attempt to run from her past. Even though this story starts out with a tragedy it definitely ends on a high note. I became so invested in the story I found it difficult to put down. I recommend this book for anyone middle grades and above who enjoys a story with substance.

WOW! What Alex has gone through at only 13 yrs old is horrific! Alex not only gets a new family when she runs away, but she bonds so quickly with a handsome Thoroughbred Yearling Colt, Promenade! Through all of her trials, the horse racing life grounds Alex & she is brought back into the family she does not realize is really hers! Love the Happy, cliffhanger ending!

This is a very good story of a young girl who feels unwanted by everyone. When her best friend is killed, she kills the woman who not only killed her friend but planned to kill her and the other girls in the home. She finds herself on a breeding and racing farm. Will she ever trust anyone? Will she find a home? The story was well told and was a little sad.
