Horse Trouble

We rated this book:


Kate loves horses and loves riding them at the stables. The only problem is that her best friend, Becky, is allergic to them, so Kate has to deal with the mean girls she takes riding lessons with alone. If that wasn’t enough, the mean girls love to make fun of Kate, especially all the times she falls off her horse. At home and at school, Kate has to deal with body insecurities, her obnoxious older brother and his friends, and lots of boy trouble as well. Can she ever gain back her confidence and feel proud about herself just as she is?

Horse Trouble is an amazing and authentic story about people, horses, and loving and believing in yourself. I like the way the illustrator described each new character with a panel that describes things like their age, things they’re into, and things they’re not into. The story is beautiful and detailed, with things people like the author could relate to. The cartoony art style is okay, though I like the way the illustrator drew the horses in the book. I recommend Horse Trouble to people who love horses or to people who can relate to Kate.
