The Georges and the Jewels

Author: Jane Smiley
Review Writer: Book Girl
This is a good book for anyone who loves horses. It is about a girl called Abby who lives and works at a place that her Dad owns. They buy rundown horses and train them, then sell them for a lot more. Abby is very useful, because whenever they sell a horse her dad tells them that a little girl can ride it. I'm not nuts about horses, and I still loved this book!

Caddie Woodlawn

Author: Carol Ryrie Brink
Review Writer: Book Girl
This is a very interesting book. It is about a girl who runs around with boys and is a friend of the Indians. She doesn't do all the ladylike stuff, like sewing and baking. And the best part is, she actually existed. I recommend this book to everyone!!!
