"My name is Grace and I am 11 years old. Sweetbriars is a wonderful place filled with exciting people, I love the characters because they have friendly and fun personalities. Every character has a love for animals or finds their love for them. Sweetbriars is an exciting story it's perfect for horsey boys and girls, I found it easy to read and I am definitely excited to read the rest of the series. I loved the descriptions of the horses and characters and it is the type of book I would buy and I can't wait for the next book. Thank you for giving me the book, I will tell all my friends about it."
