Juvenile Chapter Book Review: Blue Ribbon Trail Ride by Miralee Ferrell

Book Description: 
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:
As a young person I read lots of books centered around horses and horse farms. I'm so happy to see books like Blue Ribbon Trail Ride are still written. How delightful to read about children working together for a good cause. And in the midst of their plans for a trail ride to raise money, a mystery pops up.  As they discuss and follow clues, young readers will enjoy figuring out the answers along with the kids in the story. This is book four of a series. I haven't read the first three, but can imagine they too are well written. Miralee Ferrell's knowledge of horses and farms shines through her writing. I highly recommend the series to young people age 8-12. They'd also be fun to read as a family. I can't wait to share these stories with my granddaughter.
I received this book in exchange for a fair review.
