This is a book about a girl named Jacinda. If there is one thing everyone knows about her, it's that she loves horses. Jacinda's parents won't let her get her own horse, but that doesn't keep her away from horses, especially when she decides to volunteer at Sunnybrook Therapeutic Horse Farm. Jacinda spends many of her Saturdays and summer days at Sunnybrook. One day while volunteering, a sick, malnourished horse is brought in as a rescue. Jacinda finds herself volunteering to be the horse's primary caretaker (not owner). Jacinda has no clue it will bring so many adventures.
I thought this book was cute. I didn't know it was supposed to be for kids younger than 12 when I picked it, but the story turned out pretty good. It had most of the contents of a typical kid book: a perfect kid with a dream and a chance to go with that dream, as well as the sweetest, most desirable ending. Don't get me wrong, I think these kinds of books are awesome for younger kids who are still trying to find their dream. The main character, Jacinda, was a great example for younger readers to try to follow. She was patient, kind, and did volunteer work in her spare time. The setting of a therapy horse farm was pretty unique. I generally enjoyed the book and recommend it for all horse lovers 8+.
