really liked it
bookshelves: young-adult
Recommended for: horse lovers

Next to the Black Stallion itself, this is my favorite book of the series. How can you not adore Black Minx, this spunky, contrary filly who takes on the task of all tasks? Again, Farley's ability to capture the thrill of a race and still meet the suspenion-of-disbelief limits of an actual racing fan is superb. He puts you right in the middle of the action and gives you a thrill that's as legit as watching the real thing. When I was a kid, I used to corrall my friends into pretending to be all the horses from this book. I informed them what their names were, how fast they were allowed to be, and made sure that none of them were allowed to run as fast as me (because guess who I was).
