I'd love to read K.M. Peyton's "Dear Fred," and it's another book I'll willingly validate if someone scans. smile

I recently finished Flambards Divided, and as I was returning the book to the library I read about another book by K.M. Peyton, Dear Fred. The publisher's summary is below, although it is a little different from the summary I read on the flap. It's for grades seven and up. Fred Archer was a real person. G.Cindy Newmarket in the 1880s: Laura's heart turned over with adoration whenever she caught a glimpse of Fred Archer - dear Fred - the tall, slender young jockey who won the Derby five times and became an idol over a century ago. To Laura's parents, her passionate hero-worship was an embarrassment. The only people who understood her feelings were Uncle Harry and his strange protege, Tiger, a runaway boy with a lithe body and fiery nature who kissed Laura secretly behind the stable door.
