The God of Animals by Aryn Kyle

The God of Animals by Aryn Kyle (2008)
Set on a run-down horse ranch in small-town Colorado, this coming-of-age story is a powerful tale. Alice Winston helps her father run the riding stable while coping with her reclusive mother and the loss of her older sister, who has run off with a rodeo cowboy. As the adolescent voice, 12-year-old Alice is smarter than most. Her character is charming and authentic but she is a child with more than she can handle and no one to help her cope.

Aryn Kyle has crafted a brilliant debut; a sad story of compromises and dreams that will never come true.
