A puzzling photograph, a box filled with faded toy horses, and a single fractured memory are all that Maya has left of her mother. In Grandmother's house in California, she lives like a captive, tethered by Grandmother's rules: no talk of her mother, no friends, no foolishness of any kind...until a shocking event changes everything.

A world away, in the rugged Wyoming wilderness, a wild mustang called Artemisia runs free, belonging only to the stars. In a land where mountain lions and wranglers pose an ever-present threat, she must vigilantly protect her new foal...until a devastating act separates them from their band.

Like a braided rein, Maya's and Artemisia's lives will ultimately intertwine. Together, they hold the key to each other's survival. Download and start listening now!

    " Every girl will love this story of Maya, who is orphaned, lives with a mean loveless grandmother, then all of a sudden goes to live with a family she'd forgotten. Although the story is formulaic, it still does a good job of painting a picture of the Wyoming landscape, the horse camp where Maya spends a summer, and the connections between horses and people. "

    " I like Pam Munoz Ryan, especially after hearing her speak at a teacher conference a year and a half ago. I liked this book about wild horses and a little girl who learns about herself as she forges a bond with horses. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brenda | 2/2/2014

    " Ryan is a lyrical writer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sam | 1/26/2014

    " Maya is a captive. In Grandmother's house in California, every word and action is strictly monitored, and even Maya's memories of her mother have been erased -- except within the imaginary world she has created. A world away, in the rugged Wyoming wilderness, a tobiano Paint horse called Artemisia runs free, belonging only to the stars. She embodies the spirit of the wild -- and she holds the key to Maya's memories. How Maya's and Artemisia's lives intertwine, like a braided rein, is at the heart of this richly drawn adventure about captivity and freedom, about holding on and letting go. "

    " this is a 2010 nutmeg book nominee. a great story for students in 4-6 grade. A book girls would probably enjoy more... young and old worth the read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jean | 1/23/2014

    " I have liked all the Pam Ryan books I have read so far. This was good but not my favorite. Engaging story and realistic characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 1/22/2014

    " A good story, a little sappy, over the top. "

    " It was a good book. But I read it in Spanish so it sort of took me a while to understand it. But I loved it. Im planning to read this book but in English. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donquierafaber | 12/2/2013

    " I like other books of Ryan's better. It didn't seem very realistic that a girl who has been so sheltered would be able to survive in the wilderness on her own. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kaylaboo5 | 11/20/2013

    " It really has many small chapters that really aren't understandible until the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mpscahill | 5/11/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 1/21/2013

    " It was a very interesting book and I liked that it would switch from the horses point of view to Maya's point of view. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lm | 5/13/2011

    " A beautiful pair of stories that wind together into a book that will especially appeal to horse lovers, but can be enjoyed by anyone who enjoys tales of family and survival. I cried several times from happiness, sadness and relief. One of my new favorites! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 3/29/2011

    " I listened to this book for a mother/daughter book group. I liked it but thought it was a little slow at first. It is a nice tale about a girl learning to love horses and exploring a new life. Cute but not one of my favorites. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christina | 2/21/2011
