My name is Aspen Joyce. Once I had everything, I just didn't know how to appreciate it.

That all changed when my whole family and my horse were killed in a car accident. They say that it was a miracle that I survived.

I guess I have a different definition for 'miracle'.

So I was sent to live in Arizona with someone I barely know-- my biological dad who left me and Mom when I was only four years old. I barely got there when I realized something was really wrong.

I was being haunted by a phantom.

A Ghost Horse.

My review:

This is a great YA novella about a young girl who has to find a way to deal with losing the only family she has ever really known. In order for her to deal with the tragedy of losing them and moving in with her father, a ghost horse comes and shows her the way. There are a lot of messages about growing up that all young girls should know in this short story. 

The characters were easy well developed and the plot was easy to understand. There were moments in the story that I felt truly sorry for this little girl and her predicament and other times when I wanted to smack the adults that were involved. 

I would recommend this novella for young teens as it has some serious situations that involve making the right choices. My rating for this book is 5 out of 5.
