Andi is tired of being treated like a pesky kid. She attracts trouble and wonders if her family might be better off without her. When she disobeys her older brother, gets too near a wild horse, and is nearly killed, Andi figures her family has had enough. She saddles up her horse and runs away.
She doesn’t make it very far before trouble finds her again and her horse is stolen. Andi’s only goal is to find her horse and go home again. But how long will it take?
This is the first in a series of books about Andi Carter and her life on her family’s ranch in spring 1880. I enjoyed seeing how people lived back then, in the country and in towns. I hadn’t realized that there was such a large Latino population that migrated up from Mexico. I found it interesting how Latino families would travel and look for work. I like how Susan K. Marlow worked all that unfairness out in the end. This was a fun adventure for younger teens. And if you love horses, you’ve got to check this series out.
