For me, this has to be one of the best pony novels I have read this year. I literally could not put it down until I found what happened to Sasha and Meteor! It has all the ingredients needed for a superb pony story: a great sympathetic character, a touching bond between girl and horse, emotional depth and an intelligent exploration of deeper issues. It also shows a compassion for both human and animal which can be sadly lacking in many modern children's novels and inspires good values without being boring or preachy. I really hope that the author will continue writing for this age group as I think she is making a real contribution to the genre.
