Horse Power, by Ann Walsh

Guest review by Hannah Grant

Callie, a young city girl, has just arrived home from visiting her father when her mother whisks her away to protest the closing of her cousin’s school.

Callie is a bit annoyed with the protest at first. She is not fond of camping out in the school parking lot or of her cousin’s horse, Radish, but she understands the importance of the rural school and wants to help save it. When Callie’s cousin dares her to ride Radish, an unlikely turn of events and an unlikely friendship provide a solution to the problem.

This book is a great read for young adults and people who love horses. Callie’s humorous perspective makes it difficult to put this book down. She actually had me laughing out loud!
