Description

Bobbie Jo didn't set out to buy a limping blue roan mare--she wanted a colt she could train to barrel race. But the horse is a fighter, just like Bobbie Jo. Now all she has to do is train the sour old mare that obviously has a past. While she nurses the horse back to health, Bobbie Jo realizes that the horse, now called Blue Moon, may have more history than she first thought. With the help of the enigmatic Cole, she slowly turns the horse into a barrel racer.

Editorial Reviews

"There is a real feel-good quality to this book that will appeal to horse-loving teenage girls, and even the most reluctant reader will find the story accessible and fun to read."

— Canadian Book Review Annual

"This is a story about friendship, determination and finding one's inner strength. A good read."

— CM Magazine

"Well written, fast paced with lots of dialogue. Marilyn Halvorson tells a good story and puts her extensive knowledge of horses to good use. She writes with a sensitivity and awareness of the complexity of growing up."

— Resource Links

"The plot moves quickly, and the reader immediately becomes attached to the main character and her dilemma...Teachers and librarians who work with reluctant readers should include this book in their libraries."

— VOYA
