Book 01Book - 2011
After a horrific accident, Jess loses Diamond, her beloved pony. Her best friend, Shara, the only witness to the accident, won't tell Jess what happened. Hurt and betrayed, Jess feels as if she's lost not just one best friend, but two. Then she gets to know a beautiful filly called Walkabout, and makes some new friends. Things are looking up—until it seems that Walkabout is to be sold to a cruel new owner. The kids come up with a rescue plan that involves Jess competing at the next "camp draft"—a sport involving a horse and rider working cattle. Can Jess win the camp draft and use the prize money to buy Walkabout, the filly of her dreams? And will she ever make it up with Shara, her ex-soul-sister?
