Description

Five minutes. That's all it takes for Sylvia to fulfill a life's ambition and simultaneously blast fracture lines through her most important relationships.

Sylvia, fourteen, rides her horse in a cross-country competition, proving herself as an athlete, despite being an undeveloped shrimp with Turner Syndrome.

Unfortunately, her coach is furious that Sylvia rode too fast, and her cousin considers her irresponsible. Her mother would prefer that Sylvia focus on her health, start hormone treatment and develop like normal girls.

Sylvia is not ready for an estrogen transformation, but her triumphant athlete image does not transfer to school, where she is still a peculiar small person. Increasingly isolated, Sylvia dares to change, emerging with deeper self-confidence and broadened horizons.

Contributor Notes

Susan Ketchen's four-volume Born That Way series features a fourteen-year old girl with two conditions: she has Turner Syndrome, and she is a horse nut. Although Ketchen does not have TS, she admits to the horse problem. She lives in Courtney, BC with her husband and a couple of horses.
