#Review :Finding Home by Corrine Joy Brown and Ginny McDonald #horsestories #middlegradefiction #giveaway @iReadBookTours
A coming-of-age story and a tale about friendship, trust and understanding, both horse and owner have powerful lessons to learn. Together, young Jesse Nolan from Colorado and her wild mustang, Curly Girl, rounded up in Wyoming, discover what it means to rely on oneself, as well as those who love you most. A poignant reminder of our shared responsibility to save and protect one of the American West's most noble creatures - the mustang.
Jesse is a young girl who has dreamed of having her own horse and finally gets her chance when there is a special auction for wild horses known as mustangs. This story follows along on her adventure as she brings her horse home to be cared for.
I loved that half of the story was told from the perspective of the horse names Curly Girl. It is an unexpected twist and makes it fun to read. Curly Girl, named because of her beautiful mane give Jenna and her family a hard time but eventually finds her way home after some near tragedy.
The illustrations were gorgeous and so well done. I assumed that both author and illustrator had some connection to horses because of the way the book was written. I was correct in that assumption when I found out the (spoiler) Curly Girl is a real horse.
Overall, I liked this book and recommend it for any horse lovers out there. 4 stars!
