Meet Madeline and Justin. Before Madeline's bike accident left her with a traumatic brain injury, she and her twin sister were inseparable. So were her parents. But now, Madeline's parents are divorced and Becky has become rebellious, angry, and sneaky. Even worse, she doesn't seem to want Madeline around anymore. At least Madeline knows she can always rely on the miniature therapy horses she visits every week.

Justin is a senior and the president of his school's Best Buddies club. Before his sister with autism died, he used to take her to the barn to visit her beloved therapy horses. Now, with Madeline, he goes there to escape the gloom of his mother's grief at home and the pressures of his final year in high school.

Together, Justin and Madeline help each other to reconnect with the important people in their lives - and with the lives that they thought they'd lost.

Lorna Schultz Nicholson is the author of many novels for children and teens, including Fragile Bones: Harrison and Anna and Born With: Erika and Gianni, both nominated for the Red Maple Award. A former radio host and health and lifestyle reporter, she is now a full—time author and presenter.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Nice Story About Friendship I read this book because it is nominated for a 2018 Red Maple Award. It is about two high school friends who are each struggling with difficult situations in their lives. I liked how their friendship develops and how they help and support each other.
