Andi Carter has just turned nine--which means she and her palomino, Taffy, are old enough to be a real horse-and-rider pair at last! With a beautiful new saddle as a birthday present, Andi's sure she's ready to learn to trick ride like her friend Riley, even if her older brother Chad doesn't agree.
Riding to a secret spot her brother doesn't know about to practice, Andi finds a new friend to play with. But her fun friendship with Sadie is put to the test when they discover that their families are caught in a boundary dispute. Both Sadie's pa and Chad are stubborn as mules and each is convinced he's right. Can Andi and Sadie hang on to their friendship in the midst of this adult fight?
My thoughts: (Reviewed by Kaeli) First, the disclaimer. "I was provided a free copy of this book. All opinions are my own." That done, ANDI SADDLES UP is awesome, because it was exciting. It was kind of scary, too.
I am a reluctant reader, but this was one of those first chapter books that actually made me want to keep reading. Mom would make me sit down to read a chapter and I sometimes read two or three, and moaned when I had to quit reading to do something else. I'm excited to read Andi Under the Big Top which is in my pile to read next.
ANDI SADDLES UP is a great book for early readers. I'm glad my sister has the whole collection of Circle C Adventure books for me to read someday! 5 stars.
