Layne is determined to be a bull rider like his father--who was killed by a bull. Layne is determined to be a bull rider like his father--who was killed by a bull. "No, Layne." Mom said in a tight voice. Her eyes met mine again. "Not the bull riding. You know how I feel about that." I knew all right. We'd been through this scene so many times it was like living in an instant replay. But this time I fought back. "Yeah, and you know how I feel about it, too." "I don't care how you feel, " Mom shot back. "All know is that I watched a bull kill my husband and there's no way I'll risk watching one kill my son." Layne wants nothing more than to follow in his father's footsteps and to be a bull rider. His dad was one ride away from a National Championship when he got trampled to death. Layne wants to be able to give his dad that championship - by winning it for him. What he doesn't want, though, is to end up like his father and die in the rodeo arena. When the chance comes, Layne realizes he must face up to his greatest fear. With the help of his friend Jana, and his bratty younger sister, Layne learns to reach deep inside and trust himself.
