This hilariously voiced middle-grade novel is Mean Girls meets Black Beauty for the horse girl crew. Humanizing, heart-warming, and wildly funny, Horse Girl redefines what it means to be a young girl who loves horses.
“From the deliciously zippy dialogue to the hilarious misadventures of a sassy equestrian misfit and her equine accomplices, Carrie Seim perfectly captures what it means to be a true ‘HORSE GIRL’ circa-now — and always.”
— Sarah Maslin Nir, New York Times staff reporter and author of Horse Crazy: The Story of A Woman and A World in Love with An Animal.
"A book of exceptional wit and heart, a rare and dangerous combination. Seim clears every jump with grace." — Matthew Aldrich, screenwriter of Disney/Pixar's Coco
"Horse Girl had my daughter enthralled. Carrie Seim's writing is both funny and poignant. She spins a heartwarming tale of 'finding your forever herd' that will connect with kids and families of all kinds. There's even an awkward dad character. (Ahem.) No comment. — Dana Gould, writer/co-executive producer of The Simpsons
"The Horse Girl adventures really capture a horse lover's imagination with their spirited stories and girl talk. What a great idea and a fun read." — Soledad O'Brien
