Blue Ribbon Trail
Thirteen-year old Kate and her friends came up with the perfect way to raise money for her autistic younger brother and others to attend summer camp—a horse scavenger hunt! As local businesses donate money and prizes, Kate keeps the entry fees in her mom’s antique jewelry box.
But when the box and the money disappear, Kate and her friends must unravel the clues, hold on to hope, and solve the mystery along the Blue Ribbon Trail Ride.
My thoughts: When I was a young reader, there were never enough good, YA series for me to read.;) I am happy to see that things have changed since I was in middle school! Miralee's Horses and Friends series is a great example of a series for middle school readers that has strong, positive messages. I like that the series is about friendships, and how they can develop with those you may of misjudged. I also appreciated that Katie and her friends are trying to raise awareness and funds for her autistic brother to attend summer camp. I think this is a wonderful series for young readers ages 7-12.
I received a copy of this series from Lit Fuse in exchange for my honest review.
