Terence Blacker wanted to be a jockey when he grew and up. In fact, he could ride before he could walk, and his childhood hero was the great steeplechaser Mill House (a horse). He lives in Norfolk, England.
"What a premise! Think Gordon Korman's No More Dead Dogs meets Jerry Spinelli's Stargirl." --School Library Journal"The farcical elements are sure to please, but there's plenty of thought-provoking material here, too." --Booklist"Blacker brings gender bending to a new level of hilarity and suspense in this contemporary novel set in suburban London. The character of Sam-turned-Samantha will prompt readers to reconsider their preconceptions about the sexes and the roles people play." --Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
