This book was good. Its not what I normally tend to listen to. I am more of a Horror, Thriller kind of girl. But, I love horses, and had to give it a try. I am really glad I did. it was such a sweet story. Something you can listen to your family with.
Its about a sweet little boy who is a loner, and his parents ship him off to summer camp, to hopefully let him make a few friends.
He not only makes a few friends, But he meets Jackson. the horse. they bound right away. I will not say more because I do not want to spoil it, but its very worth the listen.

Honestly, I think the brief author's note at the end was more impactful than the whole story. This wasn't very well written or attention-getting. Perhaps very young audiences - like maybe younger than 10 would find this enthralling or interesting, but it's not up to par with many young adult books I've listened to in the past. Also, I find it more than a little hard to believe that the adults at the camp would have successfully been able to enter this child in a dangerous horse race without the permission of his parents. The narrator was alright, but not really that great overall. Maybe it was just the material he was working with. :/
A sweet tale for children about a friendless boy finding his worth and friendship at a summer camp.
The story is full of small and useful lessons about how to get on with others and believe in yourself. To my adult's ear it seemed rather unsubtle at times but of course this is a book for children not adults.
It's been written to help children understand they have worth and everyone has potential and I think that's a noble aim and I think it could work.
I'm not entirely sure what age it is aimed at but I would think perhaps around 9 to 11? Nothing very dark or gritty happens it's a fairly gentle and happy tale and useful especially for children with self-esteem issues. There is one incident of fairly mild swearing (a child says they are p*ssed off).
