Of course having been a former "pony wheel girl" as a young teenager during almost the same years as the main character, I really enjoyed this book. Though the main story is not about the ponies, they are written of through the two time periods that this story takes place. The main characters are well written. There are mysteries in everyone's past and this one is well woven. Entertaining and easy to read. A good summertime read as it is set during their last summer together.
