Such a beautifully told Young Adult horse story! I recognized my family - except I had a teasing younger SISTER - in the hell-bent-for-a-horse Annie, the gently encouraging mother, and the impossibly disapproving father.

Either way, this lovely book will resonate with anyone who was ever told horses were too expensive... and keeps you guessing all the way to the end.
