I have a daughter turning 13 this year, I think this will be a wonderful book for her to read, it has animals and step-mom/dad issues. Both of which she and a million 13 year old girls have dealt with. The book was really well written for her age group without being so simple that it is painful for an adult to read.
I totally fell in love with both girls and found their differing opinions fun to read.
*I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads.
I didn't feel like I was reading a book about two young girls who are suddenly step sisters and spirited away to have some family bonding time at a Dude Ranch. No, instead I breathed in the country air with them. I saw the captive wolves skulk around in their cage. I tensed while they went white-water rafting.
Overall, a terrific book about family (both born and cobbled together)and understanding, interlaced with details about wild wolves and a wolf pack's hierarchy- which relates to the overall story as well.
Well written, clean enough for my ten-year old and engaging enough for this thirty-something Mom as well.
Review by a girl age 12
First off, I would like to say that I loved the idea of portraying it from both of the girls points of views. One chapter it would be Diana speaking, and the other chapter it would be Stephanie. It wasn't even confusing, but it made me connect to both of the characters more. Norm, who is stephanie's father, and Lynn, who is Diana's mother, decide to go to a family trip so the girls would get along better. Diana, having a 'mood disorder' hates the fact of having a new sister. She's scared, and doesn't even want to try to be nice to Stephanie, which kind of annoyed me and made me think of her as a spoiled brat. On the other hand, Stephanie is trying her best to be nice and kind to Diana. She wants Diana to like her back. I'm glad there wasn't too much family drama in this book, because even the sister's fights together were normal and believable.
Overall, I enjoyed the concept of the book. It wasn't fluffy and it wasn't over dramatic either. It was a really fast read as well, and I cannot wait to read the sequel "Wild Horse Spring". If you enjoy contemporary, or realistic fiction books, you should give this book a try. Even though it isn't fully young adult, it didn't seem childish to me at all.

this was a cute story, but it was probably written more for kids. I didn't care for each chapter being written from a different characters voice.Published on August 31, 2013 by dipstick
