5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT BOOK!!! 19 July 2001
By Tara - Published on Amazon.com
"Boy on a Black Horse" was FANTASTIC!!! Nancy Springer has a natural writing style, and the story was so good that I read the book all day. I really couldn't put it down! The characters had an impact on me, and I feel as if I know them!! This is a truly unforgetable book that is one of my favorites.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real life show 17 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Your heart stops. This book has the most amazing content of any I have read. It was much more then an honor. It brings out more feelings and emotions then you knew you had. This is a truely amazing book. When Chav goes through all his problems and pains, you wish along with Grey, the caring horse loving young girl, you feel like you are in the setting with the charater, and you seem to be swallowed by everything.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fairy-tale-ish 3 Nov 2002
By "miezee" - Published on Amazon.com
This book deals with very real issues, but has kind of a surreal, fairy-tale-ish quality to it, probably because of the presence of a vagabond gypsy family on a black horse. You can just imagine them, riding away in the gray mists of morning...
The characters are well-developed and thought out, and the plot is intense, but thoughtful and moody.
