Reviews - What do our customers think?
Not a bad start for a young author  May 15, 2008
A friend gave me this book which she had found at the horse expo. With some hesitation I started paging through it. It's a quick little read that cannot technically be called a "novel" - it is not even 200 pages. It would take a competent reader about two hours to get through, if that.

Overall, the premise is cute, if a little simplistic. Sonora Larson is the story's heroine. She and her family travel with a rodeo, making their living competing in the various events. Sonora loves the life her family lives, but her fantasy is - you guessed it - to have her very own "dream horse" to love and train which she daydreams about frequently. Sonora gets her chance when she wins a trip to Arizona and promptly finds herself stranded in the Painted Desert after a rattlesnake scares the horse she's riding. There, she meets a white colt whom she names White Lightning. The rest of the story revolves around Sonora's growing bond with the colt: she only has two weeks to tame him and convince him to leave his wild upbringing behind to live with her.

Is this story *the best* horse book I have ever read? Of course not. Christman runs into some major factual errors; for example, her new goal is to train White Lightning to race, perhaps in the Triple Crown. If she just so happened to find a wild/registered Thoroughbred with impeccable lines wandering in the desert, this might be plausible; however, White Lightning is a mustang. ONLY Thoroughbreds are allowed to run in these races! In addition, it takes Sonora a remarkably short time to fall madly in love with the colt, and he with her, especially considering that he has never had close contact with humans before she came along.

However, I think it needs to be said that this story is not really aimed at a teenage to adult audience; at best, I'd give this to an eleven or twelve-year-old. On the other hand, if older readers - particularly those who know little about the racing world - are able to overlook the flaws, then it is a cute book.

Most of all, though, I think that one must factor in the author's age. She could not have been more than twelve herself when she wrote this; granted, I have run across some very mature young authors (Amelia Atwater-Rhodes comes to mind) but getting your first book published can be a difficult and daunting task. It may very well be that her writing style and plotting will mature along with her if she intends to carry on this story. In the meantime, I commend her for making her start in the writing world!
Horrible  Mar 20, 2007
This book seems like it was poorly slopped together in less than an hour. The dialogue is extreamly awkward and paragraphs are put together in an almost random fashion. Was there any editing involved? Thge best thing I can say about this book is that it's short. I am sorry that I wasted my money on it.
