{{Book Review}} | {Horses & Friends Series} Book 4 | Blue Ribbon Trail Ride by Miralee Ferrell

Thirteen-year old Kate and her friends came up with the perfect way to raise money for her autistic younger brother and others to attend summer camp—a horse scavenger hunt! As local businesses donate money and prizes, Kate keeps the entry fees in her mom’s antique jewelry box.

But when the box and the money disappear, Kate and her friends must unravel the clues, hold on to hope, and solve the mystery along the Blue Ribbon Trail Ride.

*My Review*
I am always for appropriate book for my three daughers. My 12 yr old didn't want  to read any of the books in this series, so I read them to my 6 & 4 yr old daughters. The themes of loyalty, true friendship, forgiveness, and hard work are great, though a child will most likely be interested in the slight mysteries involved in each book.

What I didn't like is some of the word choices that were used in the books. Things like 'Hurl,' 'dweeb,'  and also  referring to a boy as 'hot,'. I think these words are inappropriate and shold not be used in Christian juvenile fiction. 

Other than that, any horse-loving, reading girl(or girl in general) will enjoy reading about Kate's adventures in the "Horses & Friends" series.
