Dragonsdale is a dragon riding farm and school. Cara (the main character) lost her mother because of a riding accident, so Cara is forbidden to ride a dragon. She is very sad about this because her friends are all preparing their dragons for the island championships, and Cara wants to ride so much.
Cara spends every moment she can with Skydancer (a crazy dragon that doesn’t allow anyone to train him), and Cara secretly figures out how to train him anyway. Every day she dreams of a day she can take flight.
This book got my attention from the beginning because I was very interested in Cara’s story. There were some parts that were sad, but I did enjoy the way the story played out.
