A Very Good Chance, Paperback


The third novel from bestselling Waterstones Children's Book Prize shortlisted author Sarah Moore Fitzgerald.

Set in Dublin and Siena, with its dizzying, dare-devil Palio horse race, this is a story about taking chances, being brave and learning the best way to see the world.

Some people step through a wardrobe to find adventure, but Minty follows the twisty-turny trees into Nettlebog.

There she finds Ned Buckley - the moody, mysterious boy who never talks at school.

As Minty's world disintegrates around her she searches for refuge in Nettlebog, and she discovers more about Ned: he's able to ride wild horses. And he knows things about the human race that will save her. Or there's a very good chance at least. This book follows Sarah Moore Fitzgerald's debut novel BACK TO BLACKBRICK and Waterstones Prize shortlist THE APPLE TART OF HOPE.
