It's hard to be the new girl, but it's even harder being the new girl who races dirt bikes ...
Ever since her parents forced her to move from Canada to Silvertown, Colorado, Clover Kassedy hasn't fit in. So how do you deal when everyone hates you?
Focusing all her energy on racing her motorcycle did it for a while, but now that Clover's managed to find a bestie and a boyfriend, the pressure on the sixteen-year-old is worse than ever.
She's determined to get to the World Championships, where she could finally meet her idol – an Australian, the World Champion – and have a shot at becoming a professional dirt bike racer. But with her super-competitive dad, workaholic mother and relentless bullies at races and at high school, Clover is struggling to make her dreams a reality.
Will it be her scheming ex-best-friend who shatters her world? Or will she let her 'perfect' boyfriend – the guy who has finally made her feel like she belongs in their school and their town – stop her from becoming an international racing star?

An impressive debut that will have your heart racing.' - SALLY BROWNE, The Sunday Mail
'REV GIRL explores how a girl survives high school, family, first love and what it takes to become a world champion endurance trail bike chick. Dramatic, adrenaline pumping, thought-provoking, wonderful. This is no princess fairytale story. This is real. Congratulations to Leigh Hutton for an exceptional first book. Thank you for bringing us REV GIRL.' - CAROLYN MARTINEZ, author of Finding Love Again
'I felt very connected with REV GIRL, this book and its characters truly express and emphasize how important it is to believe in yourself! Leigh Hutton has written this so realistically that it reveals all the determination, motivation, success and all the negatives that come with big decision making, too. While reading this book I had just finished competing in the World Enduro Championships myself. This book will inspire many girls and women of all ages to stay strong and shine in your adventures that you create.' - JESS GARDINER, world Enduro racer and International Six Days Enduro (ISDE) 2013 Women's Champion
