Product description

By a Pulitzer Prize winner! A spirited girl. An injured horse. A story to make your heart soar. It’s the spring of fourth grade, and Ellen’s life feels like a balancing act. She’s only allowed to go to riding lessons when she’s good. Trouble is, Ellen’s really bad at that! But one perfect day, when Ellen’s actually minded her manners, she spies a beautiful colt: Ned. This injured ex-racehorse and Ellen understand each other instantly. If only he could be hers! But will her bad behaviour spoil things? And will Ellen’s parents ever let her have a horse of her own?

  • A glorious, heart-tugging tale of horses and friendship
  • Powerful themes of growing up and accepting change
  • Jane Smiley won the Pulitzer Prize for A Thousand Acres
