    1. Fortune’s Fool follows Simon O’Shaughnessy who aims to become an eventer and is well on his known with a year’s work placement in a prestigious stables. When Simon buys Fortune, a gelding that needs a lot of work, he has to convince everyone, including himself, that he was right to do.I really enjoyed this book, and it was definitely the exact kind of story i needed after feeling a bit of a book hangover from my previous read.Simon is a really interesting character as he seems to have a lo [...]

    2. I haven't read a book that has resonated with me so much for a long, long time. A very long time. Way deeper than it seems.

    3. Interesting story focused around the horse worldRecommend for mature open minded adults. This is a beautiful story of coming of age, first love, friendships, and the boundaries we all live within. Thought provoking and relatable characters leave you looking for more.

    4. Simon, who makes his first appearance in The Horse is Never Wrong, couldn't be more different from Heather. It's several years in the future and Simon has gone from the local barn's resident bronc-buster, that teenager who will get on anything, to a high school senior about to embark on his life's dream. He's going to be a working student at an eventing barn (clearly inspired by Tamarack Hill) and take life by the horns. He's going to make a living as an eventer. He's going to ride horses foreve [...]

    5. I love horses so much that I'll read pretty much any book with a horse at the center. I'll read it and enjoy it even if it's a bad book. Lucky for me, this isn't a bad book. At the center is a complicated young man named Simon. He's a whiz at math and could easily go to college and go into a career in math/science. Instead, he wants to make a life for himself in 3-day eventing, on of my favorite sports. I hate that the televised Olympics never show much beyond a few snippets of this event. Simon [...]

    6. I was not sure if I would enjoy this book but I am so happy to say that not only did I enjoy this book but the characters have stayed with me even after reading. I did not think I would enjoy reading a coming of age story about a young, gay man but I loved it! I am hoping that Ms. Pagones writes more about this unforgettable character. Simon is a young man of courage and insight. The vivid writing style of the author brought the characters and the setting to life for me. I loved this book! I hop [...]

    7. Fun readI really enjoyed this book about teens with different challenges and their journey through horsemanship together. It was much more real to life than many "formula" horse stories I have read recently. A really good read and some interesting relationship and character development.

    8. It is nice reading a book written by someone that actually knows horses. Simon is an interesting main character as a gay man since most horse stories have girls or women as the main character.

    9. I'm very excited to share this book of mine with the community. Horse fiction has always been an important part of my life: even before I took up riding many of my favorite books were set in the horse world.This book touches upon issues even larger than riding, such as the question of what to do when your life's passion isn't necessarily a financially sustainable occupation. The protagonist is male and doesn't resemble the traditional hero of most horse books and the resolutions offered by the [...]

    11. More like 3, but I want to encourage the author to continue writing! :)This actually was pretty good. I think the author could do with a slightly heavier hand editing - there's a lot of unnecessary repetition (mainly w/ song names and the narrator's horse that had to be put down)and some awkward sentence construction/grammar. But the bones are good, and I think as she writes more, the flow of the narrative will get better. I do like that the narrator is a male, and that it's mostly set in the ev [...]

    12. This sequel to The Horse is Never Wrong by Mary Pagones follows on with the after school aspirations of Simon Shaunessy. Simon is introduced in The Horse is Never Wrong as an ambitious teen who doesn’t make friends easily. His choice in sexual orientation and his attitude of not caring what others think of him win him few friends.Now out of school, Simon is able to pursue his dream to be an incredible eventer.

    13. A well rounded storyRiding English is almost completely foreign to me. But this book was still interesting to me, having strong characters in it. So it wasn't completely about horses and competition there were relationships to follow. Even though I had interrupted reading times, I was able to return to the story and remember where the characters belonged.

    14. Not my type of storyAt first look I thought this would be an interesting book since I do like horses. But the sexual references were a but to much for me.

    15. Really well written. This book reminded me of the Killers, so I ended up adding some of their songs to my spotify playlist. Total blast from the past!
