Ten-year-old Saige Copeland loves spending time on her grandma Mimi's ranch, riding horses and painting. Her school made the tough choice to cut art classes, which means she's lost her favorite subject. So when Mimi decides to organize a "save the arts" fundraiser and parade to benefit the school, Saige jumps on board. She begins training Mimi's beautiful horse, Picasso, for his appearance in the parade. Then Mimi is injured in an accident, and Saige wonders what she can do to help. Can she ride Picasso in the parade and make her grandma proud? Can she still raise money to protect the arts at school?

      This book was ok but here are some things in the book! Saige was just about starting school up she was exited but nervice. When she started school it was hard for her she didn't have a lot of friends and but she had a parade coming up and her grandma and her to do art since she really loved art and enjoyed it.But as she ready for the parade, she herd that her grandma got injured in an accident.She was thinking oh no what if no on can take me to the parade.Saige tryed to make it and she did she tryed to raise money to still have art at school it took time and effort but she kind've made an art class it worked out after all!I gave this a three star level because it was a little kiddish for me and I wasn't really into it.

        Sage loves art and she is so disappointed when art was not happening at her school that year because they couldn't afford music and art at the same time. When Saige is faced with more sadness from her Mimi's injury she does all she can to help keep the fundraiser that Mimi planned to "save the arts" alive. Saige doe all she can to keep the arts alive in her town . I think this book deserves five stars because it "keeps you on your toes" kind of. I connect with this book because art is a lot of fun and I would hate to see it go.

                    I love all american girl books. They are so inspiring and detailed. When i read Saige it made me happy. This book made me happy because when i read about her and her Grandma Mimi painting together it really warmed my heart. Overall i give this book a 9.
