A Hundred Horses by Sarah Lean

From the author of A Dog Called Homeless, winner of the Schneider Family Book Award, comes a gentle tale with a touch of magic about the power of friendship, the truth of belonging, and the most special of a hundred horses. Nell is not happy about spending her school vacation with relatives she doesn’t know. But when a half-wild and mysterious girl named Angel steals Nell’s suitcase, the two girls are tied in an adventure of Angel’s devising. Nighttime meetings and a horse that might just be magical pique Nell’s curiosity and soon she may find a way to put together the mystery of who Angel truly is, understand the legends about the herd of a hundred horses, and also discover something special about herself.

  1. Ooo, this one sounds adorable, but also, very meaningful! I don't read too many books that deal with horses and farms, and I think it's great that this book focuses on something as important as friendship. I'm glad you liked this one, Anja! Awesome review :)
