Destiny works as a groom for Abigail, an ultra-wealthy high school girl who wants to earn the title of Youth Reining Champion with her amazing horse, Let's Take a Spin. Abigail is somewhat of a bully towards Destiny until her world comes crashing down. Her horse, Spin-sir, gets hurt, and her parents lose their immense fortune. Instead of euthanizing Spin-sir, Abigail's father agrees to transfer his ownership to Destiny, who has access to around-the-clock veterinary care. Meanwhile, Destiny and her father reunite with her maternal grandfather, Pops, who owns a rescue aquarium. Other animals help facilitate Spin-sir's rehabilitation, including Buckle and Zipper, two Jack Russell Terriers, and Echo, a dolphin Pops has trained in military maneuvers. Spin-sir's road to recovery becomes an avenue for all of his owners' shattered lives to be restored to health. They each draw strength from their families, friends, and communities to overcome life's challenges and seize their dreams.
Buckle Up; Let's Take a Spin! is an action-packed, humorous novel. It contains themes of family, restoration, dealing with bullying, appreciation for Life Science, and the importance of valuing relationships above possessions.
