National Velvet

by Enid Bagnold

14-year-old Velvet Brown wins a piebald horse in a raffle. With the hired man's help, she enters the Grand National Race.

I started reading this book to my children, ages 9 and 12, but stopped after a couple of chapters because they had trouble understanding the story and it was inappropriate for young children. I finished it by myself and enjoyed it.
