Book Description

This was the best of summer vacations and it was stacking up to be the worst of summer vacations. When Jackie's dream of having a horse of her own came true, she wasn't prepared for the reality. Charlie was far from the perfect horse she had envisioned. He had a mind of his own and a will that was stronger than hers. Vet exam? Disaster! Trail rides? Disaster! Sleepy summer days? Disaster! She was dragged and dumped and desperate. As Charlie left Jackie in the dust, she chased after him, watching his tail disappear down the road but couldn't keep him trotting during a riding lesson. He was cute, and charming, and knew more about riding than she did. It was less a matter of her putting up with him and more about how Charlie put up with her as Jackie struggled to become a horsewoman worthy of Charlie.  In this battle of wills, who will win?

Middle Grade--readers 9-12 years of age


Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I have always loved horses.  I begged for years until I finally got my first horse, a bay Thoroughbred gelding I named Squire.  I fell off that horse so many times my father wanted me to switch to Western.  Because you can't fall out of a Western saddle.  Newsflash--I can. 
So bye-bye Squire and we got a calmer horse, a wonderful buckskin gelding named Yankee Doodle.  I rode all over my town and into the next town on Yankee.  I was in the 4-H, I showed, went on trails, on hunter paces, got stepped on, pushed, thrown into fences and everything else that happens on the way to becoming a good rider.
That started my life with horses.
And yes, that's my horse, Sparky, a Dutch Warmblood, on the the cover of the book.   Spark taught me everything important I know about horses.
And yes, there was a real Charlie.

I got this book a couple days ago and loved it. It was a little short, but otherwise a great book! Perfect for young horse lovers like me. :)I thought the way the author wrote about the horses was correct, too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just okay
Not a great read, but okay. It's really not for the mature reader, more for a young person in my opinion.
