What did you like about the book? When Reese’s mother dies, her father sells off all the horses and equipment that have been Reese’s entire life. He even sells Trusted Treasure, Reese’s favorite horse, who fell during the epic Black Elk race. Reese, now fourteen, has been reeling from these losses for two years along with losing her father’s attention as he deals with the loss of his wife in ways that alienate father and daughter. Reese discovers that Wes, a Lakota Indian, has leased the former barn, filling it with horses once again. She goes to the barn every day to work with Wes all the while searching for Trusted Treasure. This story is filled with Reese’s struggles and pain coping with major losses, but it also is laced with humor. Characters are fully-developed, touchable and real, especially Reese.
