Product Description

A remarkable story of growing up in extraordinary circumstances that will touch the hearts of all readers. Katie's whole world is turned upside down when her family's home is destroyed by fire. Everything they had is gone, and instead of pulling together it seems as though her family is falling apart. They move to a new house, to a school where nobody wants to know her, and Katie wonders just how many changes she can take. In her fight for acceptance and to keep the family together, she learns a lot about herself.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Irish Traveller family faces disaster and changes. 9 July 1997
By A Customer - Published on
The Blue Horse is the only book I have ever read that has Irish Travellers as the main characters. Katie is a teenager who loves her life as a traveller, but when their caravan burns everything changes. Katie and her family have to learn to live a new and very different life. They are harassed and ridiculed because they live a life different from the mainstream. Everyone can learn something about tolerance and acceptance from this book

5.0 out of 5 stars Very realistic and easy to read 27 Aug 2003
By Zheljko Stanimirovic - Published on
This girl has to start a new life, together with her family. There are used to constant traveling, but after their caravan burns down they have to live in a house. Children have to go to school as well. This is where the problem starts - many of the other people do not like gypsies and harass them around.
The book approaches several aspects of discrimination that minorities have to face on daily basis. The author speaks of them matter-of-factly and still there is always hope on the horizon. Therefore it is suitable for younger readers.
