The Week Of The Horse by author Jocelyn Reekie is a young adult novel, telling the story of a twelve-year-old girld who loves horses yet cannot afford one. So she volunteers at a local stable, where she can ride her favorite horse... until the stable closes down and her beloved Duke is sent away, to be sold at auction to a butcher. She has less than a week to save Duke, with help from her grandmother. A tender and compassionate novel, captivating and sure to strike a chord in young animal lovers, The Week Of The Horse is especially recommended for both school and community library fiction collections for young readers.
