Gr 3-7–This cheerful, positive story follows 10-year-old “city girl” Natalie after she moves from Philadelphia to a small town in rural Pennsylvania called Daisy Dell. Friendly and outgoing, Natalie adores graphic novels and hopes to write her own one day. When she spots her new neighbor at the horse farm next door, she is delighted that he resembles the hero of her favorite book, The Boy Next Door. As she gets to know him better, she finds herself growing attached to his latest “project” horse, Ghost, whom he hopes to train and sell.
VERDICT This gentle story will appeal to young fans of realistic fiction and animal stories.
