Sierra Blue is a Young Adult novel (ages ten to fifteen) about a teen girl's journey to step into who she really is, leaving fear and embarrassment behind - for the sake of a horse and her friends. The summer before ninth grade Magic Kendall leaves home to work at her great-aunt’s horse ranch to escape being harassed since her secret got out – she sees animals’ auras. When she witnesses a horse trailer crash, she tries to use her gifts to heal an injured filly without revealing how she’s doing it to her new community. What will it take to save Sierra Blue, and what will Magic learn about friends, truth, and all kinds of “different” along the way?
Although Sierra Blue is fiction, the story is based on how some people see the world through experiences many of us don't comprehend. I hope this story of hope, acceptance, and friendship touches you and leaves you feeling uplifted and satisfied.
A perfect tale for young horse lovers, brimming over with adventure and magic, found family and the mysterious power of healinng.
