YA Review: Secondhand Horses (Adult View)

Secondhand Horses by Laurainne Snelling
Reviewed by: Shauna Jenkins
Genre: YA
Publisher: Barbour Publishing
Publication Date: March 2013

After getting into trouble, Sunny is sent off to her Uncle’s ranch to learn to be a ranch hand. What follows is a fun-filled adventure for Sunny and her friends in the SAVE Club. Sunny, Aneta, Vee, and Esther are sixth graders who can’t help getting into trouble, albeit with the best of intentions.

It’s refreshing to find a lighthearted book with good kids who don’t really have complicated, messed up lives or dealing with major life issues at the moment. This is a book you can hand off to your tween to read without reservation. It seems to be hard to find in a modern day story. It’s usually much easier to find in historical fiction or older books. It was a nice change.

And I ask you, what young girl doesn’t want to read about horses? That was a big bonus in this house. (Read the tween perspective.)

Rated G: Safe for all ages.
