Endless Ranches is a town like any other town in Texas. Everybody works for the Paste Company, eats paste for breakpaste, plunch and dinner, and walks to work. But things were different before the factory came to town and all of the horses disappeared. Fourteen-year-old Naomi knows something is not quite right, but nobody talks about it. Her mom changes the subject when Naomi asks about her missing father and one of her teachers disappears after he tells the class about the town's past. But on her birthday Naomi's mother gives her an amazing gift that unlocks the truth about Endless Ranches: her father's horse-flavored T-shirt. Accompanied by Sammy, a teenaged farmer forced to steal paste so he can feed his brothers and sisters, Naomi uncovers a devious Paste Company plot to subdue the townspeople and raise an army of mindless White People. Naomi and the Horse Flavored T-Shirt is a gripping tale of greed and evil, adventure and friendship that will capture readers young and old from page one.

Naomi lives in Endless Ranches, a town where everyone works for the Paste Company. All of the food they eat is made out of paste as well as other necessities for life. On Naomi's birthday, her mom gifts her with her dad's horse-flavored t-shirt.I was very interested in the premise of this book. However, I thought the writing style failed to live up to my expectations. It was written in third person and I felt very detached from Naomi. I also thought the author excessively used Naomi's name. It seemed that in every paragraph Naomi's name was just repeated over and over. I thought the pace was good, the book moved along fairly quickly. Overall, I wouldn't re-read this book and I think a middle schooler would feel just as detached as I did from the characters.
