Shay James is a teenage foster child who wants nothing more than to belong. She believes she has found her place at a run down horse stable where, for the first time in her life, she makes friends and begins to fit in. Shay’s fragile sense of belonging is threatened when the stableowner is hurt by a mysterious attacker and in the aftermath decides to sells his horses if the criminal isn’t found. When the police fail to properly investigate, Shay and her two best friends determine to find the criminal and save the horses – but will it be at the cost of their own lives?
There are scarcely words to express how I felt reading this book. Shay is an incredible girl, full of fun, and she acts like many other teenage girls do; she has fun going out with a friend, she talks to her closest friends about secret crushes, and listens to other girls gushing about ” droolie” guys. Don’t ask me where that word came from… ask the foster girl that lives in the same foster home as Shay. Larissa; a twelve year old girl who wants desperately to be included in everything that is going on with the two older girls. Over all, I really like the reality of this book. I can honestly say that the two and a half hours it took me to read this( I am a very fast reader…)
