The God of Animals, by Aryn Kyle

I had a hard time getting into The God of Animals at first, but after about a third of the book I was hooked. This is a coming of age story about a young girl struggling to understand the actions of everyone around her, as she observes much more than it would seem. After her older sister runs off to get married, she is left longing for life to just go back to the way it was. As she navigates this new life and the changes that come, she begins to realize that you can’t go back.

I was really taken with this story when in the course of two pages, I went from laughing to tears. The imagery of the horses and their struggles were as moving as the main characters.  I’ve never been a horse person, but this book gave me a better understanding and appreciation of these animals.
