Editorial Reviews

Everything comes together here-setting, dialogue, horse details and, most impressively, voice-so that the nearaÇôfairy-tale ending works; like the rest of the book, it feels absolutely true. A standout." - Kirkus, starred review "Girls and horses never go out of style. . . . Lyne fills her story with details about various breeds, horsemanship, and horse-riding competition, immersing readers into this very specialized world. The setting of a small town that is hard to escape rings just as true." - Booklist Online "For many girls, it isn't truly summer without a great horse book - Jennifer H. Lyne's Catch Rider fits that bill." - Newsday "[A] riveting story." -Common Sense Media, (4 stars) "I'm no horse expert, but this tale sure feels and smells like the real deal. It was a real page turner for me. Perhaps you know a book where there is resolution to the story but you are so into the characters that you are not ready to say goodbye. . . I'm sure hoping to see another book out of this debut author." - Richie Partington "
