For horse-loving young readers comes the first book in the Keystone Stables series, where a tough foster child named Skye learns about love and forgiveness through a beautiful quarter horse named Champ.
Thirteen-year-old Skye Nicholson has become an expert at making sure no one will ever hurt her again. After her cold and angry behavior and numerous offenses remove her from more foster home placements than she cares to count, she's headed toward juvenile detention. But then she's given one last chance--an opportunity to live at Keystone Stables, a foster home and therapy camp where she meets a beautiful sorrel horse named Champ. As hard as she tries, she can't deny she loves Champ--but her refusal to accept her new foster parents and their Christian faith might mean losing Champ forever.
