Wildwood Stables Daring to Dream
by Suzanne Weyn
Wildwood Stables Daring to Dream is about a young girl about 13, who's name is Taylor. Her nextdoor neighbor is animal rescue lady, who has a call about a horse and pony abandoned, but she knows nothing about them. Thankfully Taylor knows a lot about horses and ponies! Taylor falls in love with a tan pony named tinkerbell and a black gelding named Albert. She wants them so bad, but her single mom can't possibly afford it! All along it's a great book for a horse loving girl!

This book is touching, exciting, adventurous, and a tear-jerker (at times). I read this book in class during SSR (Silent Surround Reading), and I started crying at one of the sad parts! I tried to hide it but, my friends could sense it right away. It was a really great book, 5 stars *****, I recommend it HIGHLY. If you are not a big reader this is not the book for you.
