Lean On Pete

After  the  death  of  his  father, 15-year-old  Charley  is  left to  fend  for  himself.  He  works  at a  racetrack  and  finds  a friend in the racehorse »Lean on Pete«. When the animal is set to be sold to a butcher, Charley runs away with him.  The  novel  is  an  »unadorned  portrait  of  American  life«  [The  Guardian]  and  utilizes  moving  and  authentic language to tell a story of the not-always-sunny American way of life.
