They meet another another pony and the pony likes a boy. Since he was adopted boy he likes spending time with ponies and... well you need to read it. It has a nice twist and surprise.

I nearly cried reading this book again! Moonshine is such a wonderful character and I used to get so sad when I thought someone horrible like Monica Corder was going to buy her, or when I didn't know it was Michael's adoptive parents coming to get her. When they did, however, the way that scene was written just made me so happy! I always wanted to cry, sometimes I even did, and even though I'm 15 now I still just teared up! Gah, these books are amazing, I don't care what anyone says. Linda Chapm ...more

This is an enchanting tale for young readers. Lauren has a pony called Twilight who turns into a unicorn and can talk to her.

Lauren meets a small pony called Moonshine at a local riding school. She thinks Moonshine looks so like Twilight that she must be another unicorn. But a different person has to be a unicorn friend for each pony to allow them to change. Then Lauren finds that a boy who is only staying in the area has quietly befriended Moonshine. His name is Michael and his parents want him

This book was about a pony named Moonshine who Lauren thought was a unicorn like Twilight, in disguise. Lauren needs to find someone to have Moonshine so that she can be turned into a unicorn. I learned to believe. Auryn 12 years old, 2016

A little young for me, but this was very well written. This was my daughter's pick from the library and I was curious so I read the first page, afterwards I realized I was hooked and had to read the rest of it. Well a few hours later I was near tears at the end. Good book.
