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?

            I like American Girl. This is about a girl who wants to ride a horse and not fail in the parade. She seems like a really brave girl. It seems like something that would actually happen in real life. I really liked this book!

              Saige is just an ordinary girl living in New Mexico. She loves to paint and ride horses. There's just one thing wrong in her almost perfect life... her school has a very low budget. The schools budget is so low that it can only pay for art one year and music the next. Then Saige has a great idea an art after school program! Then a tragedy happens! (no, nobody dies.) And Saige tries to make the best of it. Anyway I'll let you figure out the tragedy now.
