My Latin teacher recommended this book to me, and I finally read it this summer. I wasn't sure about how much I would like it, but I figured he knows a good book when he reads one. It turns out, he definitely does. I never wanted to put it down. It is not a thriller, but the story still keeps you hooked without needing a whole lot of twisting action shoot em up plot. I loved the authors style of writing. I can't believe it is her first book. This book is mainly about the relationships between people, not just horses and people, but I am a rider and I loved how she brought horses into the story. It is a thought provoking read that basically everyone over the age of about 12 or so (depending on how mature they are) would love.

Sad, sad, sad

I have raised, ridden, and shown horses all my life, and I have read many books and articles about them over the years. Never have I read so much garbage and mis-information in one book. The author may know a lot about writing and her choice of location, but she knows very little about horses. I am sure she was trying to make a point regarding love, loss, etc., but she really should get her facts straight. I would not recommend this book to anyone, especially a horseperson. It would make them sick, and they would think the writer totally clueless.

    Great for horse lovers!

    Good book! Especially if you are familiar with horses. This girl was exposed to a lot in her childhood without role models. It opens your eyes to how people in different childhood enviornments learn the way of the world.

    Highly recommended

    Thirteen-year-old Alice Winston lives on a small horse ranch in Desert Valley, Colorado. Readers are introduced to a very strong, hardworking child who has been forced to mature far too quickly, due to the loss of both a mother and sister. She has been left to care for herself with only the presence of an overworked, abusive father to console her. We first catch a glimpse of this when Alice is processing the death of a classmate who had drowned in a canal near her house. Alice decides to take on the identity of the dead girl's best friend in order to receive some longed-for attention from some questionable sources. Her life becomes mixed up in a world quite unlike her own, full of harmful secrets, gossip and deception. With no one to turn to for guidance, Alice starts the painful journey to becoming an adult alone, and discovers that it is not such a friendly place after all.

    Good Book

    I had a hard time getting into this book, but after a while I couldn't put it down. All around this is a really good book.
