I am beside myself with excitement today.
Because today’s review is not written by me, but by my sweet niece Michaela!!!!
When I first learned of this blog tour opportunity, I immediately thought of Michaela because she fits right into the middle grade range for which the series was intended. She also enjoys reading & writing and loves horses. It thrilled me (in case you couldn’t tell) that she agreed to review the book for me!! (On a side note – when I went to Laura Frantz’s book signing last year, I met Laura’s aunt and couldn’t help but think that one day I’ll be that aunt at that book signing, chatting with Michaela’s fans. My heart!)
Anyway… enough from me.
Without further ado … I hereby turn over the reins to Miss Michaela for today’s post 🙂
Take it away, M.
Thirteen-year old Kate and her friends came up with the perfect way to raise money for her autistic younger brother and others to attend summer camp—a horse scavenger hunt! As local businesses donate money and prizes, Kate keeps the entry fees in her mom’s antique jewelry box.
But when the box and the money disappear, Kate and her friends must unravel the clues, hold on to hope, and solve the mystery along the Blue Ribbon Trail Ride.
Blue Ribbon Trail Ride by Miralee Ferrell is an amazing story! It’s about a thirteen year old girl named Kate Ferris and her friends Tori, Colt and Melissa. They decide to hold a scavenger hunt in order to raise money for Kate’s younger, autistic brother and other autistic children so that they can go to camp. But, then the box containing the money was stolen!
Kate and her friends had many people on their suspect list. They also took many risks to try to find the missing box. Poor Colt even came out with a few bruises at one point.
I love how Kate, Tori and Colt are such good Christians and Melissa is learning a lot about God and how He cares for us. I think that my favorite character would have to be Kate. She loves animals, just like I do, and is also very caring and a great friend. However, the new boy named Jake is a close second. He is pretty funny and I love how he quotes sentences from tons of movies. He helps Kate and her friend solve the case of the missing money box as well as becomes part of this amazing friend group.
Bottom Line: I’d recommend this book to anyone that loves friendship, laughs, and a good mystery!
