Since getting a job at Top Tier stables, Annie has had her mind set on just one thing: earning enough money to buy a horse of her own. When she reaches her savings goal, she bids on a horse at an auction and buys Poco, a four-year-old Buckskin mare that Annie couldn't love more. But someone is trying to sabotage Top Tier, and a terrible fire breaks out at the stable. Annie must summon all her courage to save her beloved horse as well as many others in an act of heroism she didn't know she was capable of doing.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Working hard for the Top Tier stable pays off for Annie when she is able to buy her own horse, a small buckskin mare she names Poco. With the assistance of Jack Manley, the manager of the stable, she is training Poco to wear a saddle and bridle and accept a rider. Annie is in seventh heaven until another, very valuable horse goes missing. The horse does eventually return, but he is seriously injured. After that, the stable catches fire, and Annie is instrumental in saving most of the horses. In the aftermath, all loose ends are tied up, and the people responsible for the fire are caught. The plot is elegant in its simplicity while also keeping up a compelling pace, and the characters are convincing and well drawn with subtle complexity. With an accessible, straightforward first-person narrative, this high/low title will be a good selection for struggling readers. Annie's heartening connection with horses and the nicely crafted narrative, however, would make this appealing for anyone who enjoys a good horse story.--Scanlon, Donna Copyright 2015 Booklist"
