Children Ages 10+ • 3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

When Lidie moves from a small town in Brazil to New York when she’s 12 years old, she knows little English, and she hasn't seen her father, a horse trainer, or her brother for several years. Her family still thinks she’s a little girl who likes Minnie Mouse and the color pink. They also don't know that Lidie was born to ride. Lidie wants to ride her father's new filly, Wild Girl. She also comes from a warm culture and is lonely. Justine Eyre's lovely and engaging voice renders Lidie as both vulnerable and an independent, stubborn spirit. Lidie's language confusion at school and her love for Wild Girl are palpable. Eyre's accent for Lidie sounds authentic both in terms of nationality and age. Wild Girl’s own story is told simultaneously. A.B. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2009]
