Maggie gives an overview of the book:

Kerry wants a horse of her own more than anything in the world, but the scruffy, mud-covered mare she rescues from starvation is hardly the horse of her dreams. Still, Kerry believes that one day her scrawny horse will be a champion, and together they'll win the blue ribbons-and beat spiteful Whitney Myers once and for all. Can Kerry do it? Even her best friend, Holly, doesn't think so-especially since Whitney has vowed to get Kerry's horse kicked out of the stables. But Kerry knows that sometimes wishes do come true. ------------------
