Review of "Horse Dreams" by Dandi Daley Mackall

Ellie James dreams *and* day dreams about her very own horse - a black stallion to show!  She can't stop thinking of, praying, and begging for one, but she doesn't have one yet.  It seems like everywhere she goes she sees this horse of her dreams - until one day while in school, she looks out the window and sees a 'backyard horse', a pinto who has been severely mistreated and is literally running around town after escaping from the rescue farm it was brought to.

Ellie's family is awesome - her mom is a super volunteer, her dad works for a marketing company, and her younger brother Ethan, is a super athlete who happens to be deaf, so Ellie and her best friend Cole know sign language and communicate throughout the story with it.

I am looking forward to reading the rest of the books in this great series!!
