A little flaws here and there.

Summary: About some wild horses from Spain taken to Panama by ship. ( For lots of money) The ship sinks by a dreadful storm, and the horses swim to an island called Assateague. They adapt a living there, and growing thick coats like sheepdogs. Then, on Saturday morning, half- past March, A boy and girl called Paul and Maureen went to the wild island to explore, when they saw the horse Phantom. Now, Phantom was a terrific escaper, like the wind. People called the white marks on her shoulders the sign of freedom. When Paul and Maureen saw the Phantom, they were amazed and had their hearts set on her. They wanted to purchase her and tame the wildest horse in the island. Instantly, they worked ferociously to get the money they needed would the roundup men actually catch her? Now I can't tell all of the story, because this would be a spoiler and it won't be fun at all when reading it.
Review: First let me get some things straight. The reason I gave this book a three star was because there were a lot of slang words in this book, making it really hard to understand a few of the important parts of this book. I'm only in third grade! Second, I didn't get really into the book, unlike some other books. I like to be totally wrapped up with no distraction, and a lot of times reading this book I happened to get bored. Third, ( Really Important) I like books that make me laugh a lot, but I've never smiled once in this book. Other than that, I liked how it featured animals and really enjoyed this book.
Other than the three reasons, this book was absolutely great.
