Happy New Year my fellow RPErrrsss!!! Once again we welcome another year which means more books to read!
2014 is the year of the Horse according to the Chinese Calendar and with this in mind I challenge you to read this one book that was one of my fave read last year and it is about a unique kind of horse race with a unique kind of horses. See blurb as follows:

It happens at the start of every November: the Scorpio Races. Riders attempt to keep hold of their water horses long enough to make it to the finish line. Some riders live. Others die.

At age nineteen, Sean Kendrick is the returning champion. He is a young man of few words, and if he has any fears, he keeps them buried deep, where no one else can see them.

Puck Connolly is different. She never meant to ride in the Scorpio Races. But fate hasn’t given her much of a chance. So she enters the competition — the first girl ever to do so. She is in no way prepared for what is going to happen.

3) When do the Scorpio Races start?
4) What is one water horse called?
5) Which horse will never walk again because Mutt sliced its hamstrings?
6) Who was going to go to the mainland with Gabe after the races but was killed?
7) True or False. Puck rides a capall uisce but not in the races.
8) Who gives Puck a ride to Hastoway?
9) What is the name of the horse that was killed while Sean was exercising it?
10) What does Sean tell Puck to do when he first meets her on the beach?
11) Does Sean get Corr at the end and why?
12) Who wins the Scorpio Race?
