What they’re saying about it:
*
My thoughts, as a parent are that it was an engaging, well-researched story.  I would compare it to “Black Beauty” in that most of the story was told from the point of view of the horse, Sox.  It is an easy-to-read book, and there is a lot of helpful information in the back of the book.  It is the perfect book for a parent to read out loud to his/her child, and I think that it would appeal to children of all ages.  I also appreciated the fact that the author dealt briefly with issues of military parents and single parents.

E-Book Reader’s Review By Horse Lover from Leesburg, VA:
A great story for young readers who are interested in horses. Narrated from the horse’s perspective, this is the story of a young horse and a young girl facing difficult challenges and how their friendship grows and allows them to succeed.  Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
