This is a heartfelt tale of an abused horse, a misunderstood girl, and a reconciling family slowly coming back together. This is one of the best reads for any horse-lover or animal-lover. It's emotional and it tells a lot about finding yourself and facing up to pasts. A wonderful read!

This book is about a 13-year-old elective mute, Bird, who has a special talent of talking to animals. She's lived with her aunt because her mom doesn't except her for who she really is. She then meets Sundancer, a horse that is close to being named unridable and they connect. I thought a bad thing about this book was the fact that the author tried to fit too much in, too fast. It can get confusing when it comes to some legal troubles that Bird and her family find themsleves in because of Sundancer. What I did like was how the author depicted the animals Bird talks to's personal voices. They made me laugh and sounded just like something a real animal would say. I would only recomend this to somebody who is really into animals... and not really anybody else. (by the way... the book takes place in Canada... it took me awhile to figure that out...) : D
