Home (Bitter) Sweet Home
Now that Sasha Silver and her horse, Charm, have proven that they're worthy competitors for the Canterwood Crest equestrian team, Sasha's psyched to get back to school... until self-proclaimed It girl, Queen Bee, and owner of the I'm-so-way-better-than-you-are attitude, Heather Fox, is assigned as Sasha's riding partner.
And when Heather starts spending a little too much QT with Sasha's almost-boyfriend, Jacob, the partnership is put to the ultimate test.
Detailed Plot SummaryEdit
The book starts out with Sasha and her parents in their SUV. It is the first day back on campus after winter break. Sasha says goodbye to her parents and heads of to her dorm, Winchester Hall.
She walks through the common room and into her dorm that she shares with her roommate and best friend Paige Parker. They greet each other fondly. Sasha notes that Paige is wearing indigo skinny jeans, and a camel-brown cashmere sweater, typical of Paige's Manhattan lifestyle, where the girl lives. Sasha then recalls a text that Paige sent her, saying that she would be MIA (missing in action) until after the break, seeing that her mom was stressing family time. All her mom let her watch on TV was The History Of Christmas on PBS in two four-hour segments. Sasha teases Paige about her Southampton Socialites DVDs, saying that Paige may have to bake her a batch of her 'famous chocolate chip cookies' in order to acquire the DVDs. Paige is an aspiring cook, and often auditions for TV cooking show jobs. Her dream job is to host the Kid's Food Network. Sasha then gives Paige the DVDs and gets ready to leave, as she had planned to race with another good friend of her's, Callie Harper.
While meeting with Callie, Sasha spots the Trio and asks her friend why she invited them, to which the girl replies that they should each do it together, since they are all on one team. They all start the race, and Sasha is so focused on beating Heather that the mindset proves to be an unsuccessful tactic, and Callie wins.
