About the Book
One girl’s victory is another’s tragic defeat.
Thirteen-year-old Selah’s perfect life unravels when her beloved horse is stolen. Then ten-year-old Emma buys the dream of a lifetime at a horse auction. When she learns the horse was stolen, even removing her hearing aid won’t drown out the voice telling her to make it right.
But two girls can’t divide the horse they both adore. So will life surprise them with an answered prayer?

In My Opinion
When I was younger (and on into my teen years), I loved all things horses and would have devoured this series from Susan Count. But even middle grade girls who don’t care for horses will enjoy this book. I jumped in at book four in the series and, though I don’t recommend it because reading a series in its entirety makes for a richer, more rounded experiences, Selah’s Stolen Dream never left me scratching me head wondering what was going on. It did, however, interest me in reading the previous three books.
Count weaves themes of grief, responsibility, and sacrifice within the pages of this book. There are also a couple of cautionary situations that are relevant to tweens today.
Both Selah and Emma are extremely likable characters (although Selah took a little longer to warm up to. I doubt this would have been the case if I had read the previous books, though) and the entire time I was reading this story, I wondered how both girls would get their happy endings. The ending was completely satisfying yet I could have hung out with these two girls and their families longer.
