I always have problems with books like these. There can be really boring at the beginning and then be really sad at the end. I hate books where animals die. I’ve never understood why you have to kill the horse if it breaks a leg. I don’t get it. I know nothing about horses but if anyone knows and they could tell me it would be appreciated. Anyway I liked the writing style of this book and I loved the last few pages, I loved the way they were written.
But one problem I did have with this book is that Bessie seemed a lot older than 8. She seemed to think like she was a lot older and for the most part act that way too. Now if I did my math right this book takes place around 1924 so I don’t know if kids acted older back than or not.
