My 13-year-old self actually wrote a letter to Ann M. Martin about this book. I was so irritated with Mallory. Who falls off a horse and (barring serious injury) does not get back on? That is the first lesson you learn in horseback riding. You have to get back on the horse. Instead, Mallory spends the rest of the book whining about how scared she is of horses unless she gets to ride her special pony Pax. I was so disappointed, especially after reading 53 or so books worth of Mallory begging her parents for riding lessons.

Ann M. Martin did actually write me a personal letter back, which was pretty cool.
