    I really liked this book because it was amazing how this was sorta a true story. The plot was carefully laid out and the pace went at a good, steady beat. I enjoyed this book a lot and I would recommend this to horse-lovers.

      I Personally love how you didn't just give the way and absolutely love the details! you don't just put all her features in one sentence you break it up, also you didn't just go ahead and told what she likes, like you didn't just put "Oh, I like horses and love to ride them." you put it in the characters words, and lets not forget, I love how you make them talk instead of saying "Don't" they say "ain't" I love this book! an absolute five star rating

                This is a very good. I recommend you read this book if you are a horse lover. A girl named Charlotte runs away from a orphanage because she dreams of a better life. Her best Hayward also dreams for a better life, but that all changes when he finds out he is getting adopted.
