If I could, I would give this 3.5 stars, only because the story, as divided into three parts, leaves a lot of unanswered questions. Not that everything in a book needs to be neatly tied up, but I really wanted to know what happened to some of the characters who just (literally) disappeared. That said, the simple sentences sing and descriptions shimmer in short bursts of prose. Hagy made the horse world fascinating. She also navigates the line between those stories that unrealistically glorify animals, complete with a Disney ending, and those that end badly and make you weep for days. (Or in my case, seem to have scarred me for life: Old Yeller, The Red Pony, etc.). This is Will's story, not the horse's, and he is a compelling character.
