"A contemporary and irresistible story from Patricia Reilly Giff"
Lidie lives in Jales, Brazil, where she''s free to ride, to be a wild girl, and to dream of going to live with her father and older brother, Rafael, in New York City. Finally Lidie is 12--time to leave Brazil for New York.
Meanwhile, a filly is born and begins her journey to a new home. As Lidie''s story unfolds, so does the filly''s.
Lidie''s father runs a stable at a famous race track, and Rafael is training to be a jockey. As much as they want to make Lidie feel welcome, they still think of her as the little girl they left behind. They don''t even know what a strong rider she is, and that she''s determined to befriend and ride the wild filly her father has just bought: Wild Girl.

"From the Hardcover edition."

From the Publisher:
When twelve-year-old Lidie leaves Brazil to join her father and brother on a horse ranch in New York, she has a hard time adjusting to her changed circumstances, as does a new horse that has come to the ranch. Simultaneous.
Several years after her mother's death, 12-year-old Lidie moves from her warm, familiar Brazil to cold, distant Long Island to join her horse trainer father and brother. Lidie is having a hard time adjusting, and with little English school is challenging, leading to a very embarrassing incident. Also, it's hard to adjust to living with her father and brother after years spent with her uncle's family. The only respite is the thought of riding an untamed filly, Wild Girl, who seems to share her feeling of displacement.
Author Bio
Patricia Reilly Giff
Well-known for her popular series of books about the students of the Polk Street School, Patricia Reilly Giff is the author of over 70 books for children. Educated at Marymount College (B.A.), St. John's University (M.A.), and Hofstra University (professional diploma in reading), Giff has worked as a public elementary school teacher--a career which influenced her decision to create books for children. Her first book, FOURTH GRADE CELEBRITY, was published in 1979; her 1997 novel, LILY'S CROSSING, was named a Newbery Honor Book. Giff has said that LILY'S CROSSING, which is about a girl coming of age during World War II, is her most personal work.


"As usual, Giff's characters are beautifully nuanced and entirely real, her prose is as streamlined and efficient as a galloping Thoroughbred and her quiet ending breaks your heart. A stakes winner." 07/15/2009

"Rich characters and raw, real emotions make this much more than the usual horse story." 09/01/2009
