Annotations for Bull Rider


Baker & Taylor
When his older brother, a bull-riding champion, returns from the Iraq War partially paralyzed, Cam enters a bull-riding contest in hopes of winning the prize and motivating his depressed brother to continue with his rehabilitation.

All it takes is eight seconds....

Cam O'Mara, grandson and younger brother of bull- riding champions, is not interested in partaking in the family sport. Cam is a skateboarder, and perfecting his tricks -- frontside flips, 360s -- means everything until his older brother, Ben, comes home from Iraq, paralyzed from a brain injury.

What would make a skateboarder take a different kind of ride? And what would get him on a monstrosity of a bull named Ugly? If Cam can stay on for the requisite eight seconds, will the $15,000 prize bring hope and a future for his big brother?
