Abbey, Hannah and Talika are new recruits at Willowvale boarding school's Vet Cadets program. Mrs Parry, their science teacher, has given each of the girls a chick to raise and train, but not everyone is happy about it!
When a game of horseback hide-and-seek turns into a matter of life and death, rules are broken and the friends' courage sorely tested. This time, a solution might be out of the Vet Cadets' hands . . .
