My Feelings:

The third installment in Janet Rising's fun and fresh new horse series featuring a girl that can talk to horses-and an irreverent, sarcastic pony that talks right back!
In Secret Pony Society, everyone at the stables is on alert when traveling gypsies return to the area. But Pia cannot help but be drawn to one traveler girl, Jazz, who has real pony-whispering powers. When she and her pony become runaways, should Pia help Jazz-and risk her new friendships at the stables?

My Review:
I’m not a huge fan of stories with horses in it, so I was wondering if this is the right type of book for me that I will enjoy. But I have to say that it surprised me in a good way. I actually liked it.

Pia is a fun young girl. You could really tell she loved her horse very much and that she would do anything for him to keep him safe. I didn’t really get to knew her, but I think it’s because it’s the third instalment in the Pony Whisperer series. Her horse, Drum, brings the humor in this story. He´s very sarcastic and very funny.

The plot is nice. I liked the mystery part a lot, but it was easy to find out who the person was who did something bad. I also thought there would be more talking to horses, but there really wasn’t a lot of it going on. The plot really is about helping Jazz.

All in all Secret Pony Society is a fun book that middle graders will enjoy.

This is the cover of the book that I received from Sourcebooks!
Very cute!

Might have to skip this one, but this does look cute. I think I would appreciate this when I was younger.

I loved reading horse stories when I was little. This one would probably have appealed to the younger me.

Never really read a book about horse myself but I've a feeling that the younger me will surely love this one.
