Synopsis

Horsing Around by Helen Orme

As part of the school's community week, Donna decides to spend a week helping at the stables. That's fine - she loves horses - but not the three other girls she has to work with. When they start messing about, there's nearly a serious accident. 'Horsing Around' is part of the Siti's Sisters Series, in a set of six light-hearted fiction books designed to have particular appeal to girls. Siti and her friends are four girls who experience all sorts of life issues in this engrossing series. They are ideal for touching the hearts of young girls and always a great read. Each fast moving story is around 1200 - 1500 words in length, with tightly controlled vocabulary and contemporary black and white illustrations throughout to help readers engage and follow the narrative. Published by Ransom Publishing, a specialist in books for struggling readers, the books are designed to appeal to reluctant readers aged 10 - 14 with a reading age of 7 - 8 years. There are a further 18 books in the total series.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
