Reseña

'Fifteen-year-old Charley Thompson wants a home; food on the table; a high school he can attend for more than part of a year; and some structure to his life. But as the son of a single father working at warehouses across the Pacific Northwest, he s been pretty much on his own for some time.Lean on Pete opens as he and his father arrive in Portland, Oregon and Charley takes a stables job, illegally, at the local race track. Once part of a vibrant racing network, Portland Meadows is now seemingly the last haven for washed up jockeys and knackered horses, but it s there that Charley meets Pete, an old horse who becomes his companion as he s forced to try to make his own way in the world.A portrait of a journey populated by a vivid cast of characters against a harsh landscape Lean on Pete is also the unforgettable story of a friendship and of hope in dark times.
