This is one of those books that I loved as a teen and continue to enjoy. It's a very sensitive portrayal of a shy, intellectual teenager who can't figure out how to deal with the death of her older sister. I love horses, which is what first drew me to this book, but it was JoBeth, the main character, who held my attention. Her pain, confusion, and anger are believably drawn, as is the difficulty she feels in expressing these emotions (or any others) to the people around her.
Feeling out of step with the world around you is probably common enough when you are JoBeth's age. (Or mine, come to think of it.) I like the ways in which Ms Calvert allows JoBeth to handle her feelings, and learn to deal with them.
This is a really touching book.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Overall I found this book to be very slow moving and too meandering at times. The main character, JoBeth, has lost her sister and is struggling to deal with the impact that her death from ALL has had on the family. Her father was always closer to JoBeth while her mother was closer to her sister Ashleigh and now that balance seems to have been broken. JoBeth tries to make up for her sister's death by being more like her and visiting her old horse Riono.

JoBeth doesn't know anything about horses or riding but is drawn to the solitude that the Hunt Club has to offer. While there she develops a relationship with the stableboy and overcomes her grief through horsemanship.

I personally did not think that the author needed to include all of the references to the stone pony from the museum because it seemed to detract from the main plot line. I did like the fact that JoBeth was able to grow stronger from her loss though so I give this book three out of five stars.

Great story about a teenage girl's experience with the tramatic loss of a loved one. JoBeth is a well developed main charactor with a realistic perspective that has conscious and subconcious ways to finally accept, understand and grieve.

this book i thought was really good, though it may seem slow i found the story line a good one, a normal girl learning to deal with her sisters death and opening up to new things and coming out of the shell she seems to be hiding in. i would recomend this to anyone likes horses or even those who don't.

though some don't seem to see it the stone pony has a lot to do with symbolism and JoBeth letting go.
