More About the Author
I have a brother, three years younger, married, and mathematically gifted. I am totally without math skills.
The books I write, the topics and subject matter, grew out of my firstborn son's diagnosis of diabetes at age 3.
Infinite reward that comes to me from my work.... when a grown reader lets me know that reading my books inspired her to seek a profession that helps others. I have wonderful letters saying, "Today I graduated from nursing/medical school."
Now that's a gift of joy!

There were two glaring minor annoyances. First, no one gives a stallion to a fourth grader. That would be irresponsible and a possibly deadly combination. Secondly, an eighth grade boy is very unlikely to have a "deep masculine voice".
These two things were just the first inaccuracies I found. Yes, it's a story for kids, but would prefer the story being a little realistic. No stud horses for young girls (in most show circles it is against the rules for a person under 18 to show a stallion), no deep voices for 13-14 year old boys.
The rest of the story is interesting, hence the three stars instead of one. I hope that at some point the author will rework the book to make it a bit more believable. This version falls flat and any reader who knows anything about horse show circuits will spot the problems.
