Review: 'Wind Dancer' by Chris Platt

Wind Dancer by Chris Platt, 2014, Peachtree, $15.95, hardbound, 126 pages. Category/Genre: mainstream. Cover: brilliant. A handsome face, indeed! Where we got it: publisher. Where you can get it: Barnes and Noble, Books-A-Million. 

This is a touching story about a girl who lost her horse and a young man who lost his leg in a war he can't forget.

Ali McCormick, 13, has decided not to love horses anymore; it hurts too much after losing her precious Max. But she can't decide not to love her brother, who she also feels she's lost after he came home from Afghanistan damaged. 

But Ali's best friend, Cara, won't let her forget how special horses are, and neither will Ali's parents, who soon bring home a pair of neglected horses for Ali to tend. 

You'll have to read the book to find out if Wind Dancer, one of the horses in question, can save the people who are trying to save him. 

For middle readers.
