God of Animals by Aryn Kyle

February 5, 2008

godofanimals.jpg   God of Animals is a 2008 Alex award winner, and a complex story of love, secrets, loss and how a child becoming an adult is buffeted by the storms surrounding her. The struggle was painful for me, and true horse lovers will find this story alarming at best.  Alice, her sister and husband, her depressed mom, the catfish, the kids at school and at the barn, her grandparents,  the teacher even the horses are fully developed people you can’t help but care about.  This title is is for your mature readers because of the emotional depths explored. You will have to move to adult books for more read-alikes for this reader.
