THE HORSE WHO CARRIES THE STARS
The companion book to ON A GOOD HORSE
Thirteen-year-old Reece Harding has both hands full dealing with one headstrong mare who’s all go and no whoa. When a devastating wildfire threatens their corner of Colorado, it’s going to take all of Reece’s horse skills and some Appaloosa luck to save the day and prove to herself—and her family—she can handle Kip, the horse who carries the stars on her rump and a fire in her heart.
