Wow! What a great story! The protagonist, Lidie, is a lovable character and not just because she's horse crazy. The emotional turmoil is heartbreaking at times when she leaves her native Brazil and moves to Queens, NY to be with her father and brother who work at a racing stable. They still think she is a seven-year-old who loves Snow White, while Lidia is 12 and, unknown to her father and brother, rides very well. Being at a new school where no one understands her language, and she knows very little English, Lidia is overwhelmed.

A new horse at the stable named Wild Girl (Lidia's dead mother's nickname for her as well) helps her overcome all the new obstacles and bring the family together.

This is a "must read" for all young readers and horse lovers of all ages.

This book is the story of a beautiful horse named Wild Girl and a girl named Lidie from Brazil. More than anything, she loves to ride horse fast! Wild Girl is a calm, gray, white and black horse that you would not expect to go fast, but she can really run! When Lidie turned 12, she moved to a farm in Queens, New York to live with her dad and brother, Rafael. Her dad and brother still think of her as a little girl they once left behind in Brazil. She needs to show them what a great rider she is, so they will realize that she's an older girl now and that she can truly handle a horse. Family and friendship are really what this incredible story is about. This amazing and fascinating story would be a fantastic book for horse lovers and students that enjoy reading fiction.
