I loved this book although it was kind of boring at the beginning! It is about two twins that go separate ways. One girl named Jessica wants to help the ocean because of the oil spill. A girl named Elizabeth wants to help a teenager named Ted get caught up on paying the bills he owes to the guy who owns the stables. Then one day while Ted has riding his horse he fell off and broke his leg! He wouldn't be able to ride in the finals competition!!! He would have to look a person with experience to ...more
It was always kind of funny how suddenly there'd be a new character for a book, who'd either NEVER been mentioned before or who had perhaps been name-dropped once in a class-room five books ago, yet when you start reading the book about them they're someone's bff and it's as if they've totally always been there. And then you never hear of them again. This was probably one of those... I liked it, though. I liked horse stories even though I never rode myself except at school.
I knew I had read all the Sweet Valley Twins books that had to do with horses, but I'd forgotten about this one until I saw it in my basement.
I just love the way these stories roll on. I tried to read them all in order, but sometimes I had to get caught up later...
My sister gave me this book for my 10th birthday.
Young horse lovers will enjoy this book.
