This is a realistic fiction story by an author that I feel is just an amazing writer. I could not stop turning the pages in this story and it made me want to know what will happen next. I was so engrossed that I thought I was actually in the story!
This story is about two groups of friends who travel home for Christmas to help with a Holiday Adopt-a-thon. They are trying to help rescue ex-racehorses who are in danger of being euthanized because they can no longer perform in or win races.
At times this story could be hard to follow - especially since it is about two different groups of friends and what they are trying to do. But all in all, this story will appeal to anyone in my age group who has ever wanted to either own a horse or who loves horses.
