Five Stars For The One Dollar Horse


I’m always on the lookout for a great weekend read, and The One Dollar Horse did it for me.

I love the rags to riches story.  I love that a horse was saved from slaughter.  I love that Casey Blue did with Storm almost exactly what I did with my own horse Snowdy.

I love that the story pulled me in so deep I stopped worrying about the fact I was reading a British book.

Lauren St John has a beautiful way of passing a lot of time in this novel.  Because, in real life, conditioning a horse takes a ton of time.  She truly “cut out all the boring parts.”  But she also provided a story that wasn’t just about a horse.

There was a struggle for money – entirely relatable when you have a huge pet.

Complicated family dynamics.

An adorable first blooming romance…

I loved the story so much I ordered #2 and #3 in the series right after I finished The One Dollar Horse.

Even though it’s written for a young audience, adults will enjoy this.  Casey Blue is by no means an immature narrator.  Lauren St. John’s voice is light, humorous, and full of respect for animals.  I can’t wait for the next books to arrive at my doorstep.
