One of the best of this series that I have read. I know that if I were orphaned the first place I would want to go to is a stable.
Shining's Orphan is about a little girl named Cindy Blake who is found by Samantha McLean sleeping in a stall with two orphaned foals. Cindy's character is rough and mistrustful from her life as a foster child who's been moved from home to home and having no stable environment to call her own, until she comes to Whitebrook. There she finally finds some stability and loving people who want her around , not like the foster family she ran away from where they just want the government check they get ...more

This would be so much more enjoyable without Cindy! She's such a selfish little brat! I love this series more than anything but trying to read the books with her in them is just miserable!
It's one of my favorite books so far and it's very well written. Highly reccomended for grades 4-7 (ages 9-13). I love this whole series, but my heart goes out to this book
A good book

I did loose the story line a couple of times
