Rescue, by Jessie Haas

Written by Jessie Haas

I really like horse books and I like this book a lot. I can relate to Joni because she loves horses. When a new girl, Chess moves in, she becomes Joni’s friend. Chess wants to help animals and keep the world a green place. She was a little dramatic for me and she felt a little preachy, so I didn’t like that part. Chess takes some horses from a neighbor because she thinks the horses aren’t treated right. Joni is scared to stand up to her friend. They have to work out their problems with each other. If the book had more horse things I would have rated it higher, but I liked it. (review by 5th grader, Elizabeth)
