One Dollar Horse
It’s every young girl’s dream to one day own a pony, right? From the moment Casey Blue -who grew up in a council block in Hackney - rescues a half dead, half wild horse she calls Storm Warning, we know this is going to be no quiet trot around a school. We’re in for a fast paced, grab-onto-the-saddle kind of ride. Storm Warning comes into Casey’s life just as he’s about to be turned into dog food, and suddenly Casey’s wildly ambitious dream to win the famous Badminton Horse Trials seems like it might just happen. But naturally, nothing is that easy. A boy, her well -meaning ex-con dad, and a determined arch rival will all prove stumbling blocks to her plan. But can she and Storm Warning go the distance? Once we started Casey’s story there was no putting down – we had to get to the finish. From plot twists to interesting characters, and a certain farrier’s son, we were gripped to this book like we were reading a love letter from Justin Bieber. Amazing stuff. And the pink edges were a winner for us too. For horse lovers everywhere, One Dollar Horse by Lauren St John is a must read! We give it 5/5!
