"Pros: Believable characters, mystery, and an all-American girl combine in a story that will grab readers from the first page.
Cons: None." - The Reading Tub
"For many readers there will be much to learn about in these stories including how wild horses are tamed and trained and what a rodeo is like. But the thing that shines through both of these stories and rings most true is the love and connection that Kirstie has for these horses. By caring for them and loving them, she learns much about herself and the world around her. A very enjoyable read." - Crazy 4 Kids Books
