    Trotted through The Georges and the Jewels

    The book, The Georges and the Jewels, was an okay good book about horse training from a kid's perspective; however, I thought the story was a little weak in threading the main character's personal and emotional struggles. I found it a bit slow and predictable.

    The book was about a girl whose family was in the business of breaking in horses and selling them. The main character, Abbey Lovitt, is a seventh grader who is dealing with school conflicts; but, spends most of her time focused on training horses for her dad to sell.

    The book begins with recalling the tension and conflict between her father and brother. The son leaves the house abruptly and she is only one kid left to train the horses. While she is a good horse trainer, she finds one particular horse stubborn and intimidating. She is uncertain of herself and gets assistance by a gentleman whose character is much like the horse whisperer.

    Abby learns another way to communicate and train the horses, that allows she and her father to become more effective in the horse business.

    I wished I would have seen more written on the relationships between her peers, her family or more of what she was thinking from her perspective.

    It's a good light read. I wouldn't say I would tell someone to rush out and read it.
