Her father and stepmother?s niece has just won a big prize for horseback riding. How will Emma ever measure up? Before long, she has a plan. Winter Games Day is coming up at school and if Emma trains really hard, she?s sure to win her own prize?maybe even more than one! But once the games begin, Emma starts to see that being an excellent athlete isn?t the same as being an excellent daughter.
