Bright Star by Jenny Oldfield

A heart-warming story about the powerful connection between an isolated girl and a terrified wild pony. When 12-year-old Morgan is sent to her aunt's ranch in the Rockies for the summer, she has no idea that she will forge a bond that will last her lifetime. Morgan is more comfortable around horses than people, but then she meets Bright Star, a terrified wild mustang her aunt has rescued, and discovers that she is braver than she ever realised. A powerful, girl-friendly story about the friendship between humans and animals.

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 8+
