I was so excited to see a horse book with characters that are well written. Rylee is sweet girl who has been sheltered most of her life . Her mother is over protective and she is a little naive . When she starts with the horses you really see her blossom and come into her own . She really grew as a character . Sawyer is sweet and a gentleman . He really wants Rylee to become her own person . They are so cute when they are together . With the help of her friends she will be transformed . These characters are so well written and you will love each and everyone of them .
This book really intrigued me , when I started reading it, I got all the feels . I felt like it was taking me back to childhood . Being that awkward teen that would rather read then be around people . The author has a good grasp on the main characters . There is lots of laughs and a few tears through out this book . The characters were well written and you can connect with them easily . There were a few spots that i feel that fell flat and where the characters just didn't really feel right , I felt that it kind of dragged just a little . Over all i really did enjoy this coming of age story and the fact it had horses in it mad me very happy. So if you want a good story of one finding oneself through laughter and tears and just maybe fall in love with the boy next door this is the story for you . Check it out you won't be disappointed .
