The Blue Horse

TheBlueHorse Katie’s whole world is turned upside down when her family’s home is destroyed by fire.

Everything they had is gone, and instead of pulling together it seems as though her family is falling apart. They move to a new house, to a school where nobody wants to know her, and Katie wonders just how many changes she can take.

In her fight for acceptance and to keep the family together, she learns a lot about herself.
