Shy Girl and Shy Guy (Quartz Creek Ranch Book) by Kiersi Burkhart -ADVISABLE

Burkhart, Kiersi Shy Girl and Shy Guy (Quartz Creek Ranch Book), 233 pages. Darby Creek (Lerner), 2017.  $20.  Language: G (o swears); Mature Content: G; Violence: G.

Hanna ends up at Quartz Creek Ranch for six weeks because she is having trouble with stealing at home. Her parents think the camp will be therapeutic and helpful to her. But riding horses doesn’t sound like Hanna’s idea of a good time. Then she meets Shy Guy, a beautiful but wild horse, who was lost and possibly abused, and no one can tame him because he is afraid of humans. But gradually Hanna ends up earning Shy Guy’s trust, even helping to bring him home after he runs away. But when the former owner comes to take him away, Hanna knows she can’t let that happen.

This book was far and away better than the other book I reviewed from this series. This story was really truly about a girl and a horse bonding. The author does a great job creating memorable characters and a pace of plotline that creates a believable relationship. I think horse fans would adore this book!
