Write a Review

Perfect for anyone who loves horses and riding, from
award-winning author Jane Smiley.
Ellen's family has moved to a new town...but
some things, like her love for horses, remain
the same. Ellen is now the proud owner of her own horse, Tater.
She's learning new skills and challenging
herself as a rider...but she still can't stop thinking about
Ned, the feisty former racehorse she sees on the ranch during
her lessons.
In the meantime, Ellen's making new friends and
encountering old ones. Most exciting of all is
Da, a boy from a riding family who is possessed of a spirit
of mischief and daring and knows his own mind.
Ellen still has a lot
to learn...about horses, friendship,
and herself. And will she ever
be able to get Ned off her mind?
