Little Girls and Their Ponies
*a literary fiction novella*
by bestselling author
for fans of Gayle Forman, Jodie Picoult, and John Green
“There was a special kind of love between a girl and her horse. It was the purest kind of love in Alice’s opinion. It’s before boys and cars and high school, when a little girl’s life is measured in delights like galloping across a field, blue ribbons, and slobbery kisses. It’s a love defined not by wins and losses, babies and mortgages, but by the moments staring into deep brown eyes and knowing in your heart that your horse understands you better than anyone else. That’s the love of a girl and her pony.”
That day on the road took everything from Alice Montgomery. Her beautiful face, her father’s keen mind, and her precious horse. One horrible accident left her trapped in a burning truck. They say she was lucky to survive, but they lied.
Nearly a year later, Alice feels the pain and sadness from that day just as fresh as when it happened. Her surviving is barely hanging on. How do you live when all you once lived for is dead and gone?
Then one day opportunity knocks on the door. It’s the chance to heal, to move on. Finally, Alice feels something besides the familiar, aching pain.
It’s time to leave the fire behind and truly live again, but Alice holds tight to the pain of that day, possibly too tight to ever let go.

Review by Dana Marie
After a tragic accident Alice must learn to pick up the pieces and heal not only physically, but mentally too. However, she is just going through the motions daily and doing it halfheartedly at best. When Matthew presents her with a group of neglected horses that are in need of a temporary home and care, will she rise to the occasion and take a chance?
This read was sweet and pulls you in. The characters were down to earth and you can relate to their story that keeps you reading straight through to the end. Speaking of the end, which is where I felt most vested in Alice’s character, you find yourself getting thrown for a loop.
This heartfelt story by Meg Collect was provided to me for an honest review. Believe me when I say that I’m happily finding my way through her books and this read you will enjoy.
