The third book by Nanci Turner Steveson tugged at the heartstrings just as much as Swing Sideways and Georgia Rules did before it. In this novel, Lizzie and her mother find themselves moved into a homeless shelter after her father is put in jail for embezzling from his business. Lizzie finds a path in the woods with a fork: the first trail leads to the library where she spends time immersing herself in books, befriending the librarian and volunteering, while the second trail leads to the Birchwood Stables which becomes a second home for Lizzie. I will definitely recommend this book to all my horseback riding students. However, I will be recommending it to all students who love realistic fiction that deals with difficult situations with truth and compassion as well. Another gem of a tale from one of our favorite authors!!!
