Avatar for Laura P. Laura P. said:
A good coming of age novel about Alice, a young girl growing up in Colorado. Her family runs a stables where they board horses and train riders for shows. However, Alice soon learns nothing is as it seems. Her profoundly depressed mother never leaves her room yet seems to know everything that’s going on. A rich horse owner buys Alice new clothes which gets her into the cool clique at school yet she does not fit in. Even a horse named Darling is anything but. What is real and what is false and why people tell lies and how they live with them is central to this novel. I found it enjoyable yet the ending is lacking.

The joy of reading this novel is two-fold: the quality of the writing (superb!) and the creativeness of the story. It is a riveting account of a young girl as she learns the ways of her world. Highly recommended!
