Angels Club

by Courtney Vail

What a great feel good book! This book follows a group of girls who were deemed the outcasts and were picked on and bullied and decided to not just let others beat them down. Not only do these girls find a way to help themselves become the best they can be but they also begin to change the bullies. And it was all inspired by one special horse named Angel.

I would recommend this book to anyone and especially to children of this age that possibly are dealing with bullying and also to people who are doing the bullying. This book has a great message! ( )

Thank you for the book. Written with young girls in mind and with a sweetness and innocence. Centered around a rescue horse, named Angel, a club formed by seven girls, to promote good works to help others. They bestow angel kisses on people in their community they feel are worthy and have done good deeds. Juacinda and her friends in the club work together to organize a fundraiser, Sunnybrook Farm Therapeutic Riding Center's Fall Fundraiser, Equestrain Show and Art Exhibit, where Angel and other horses are raised and trained. The fundraiser was a big success, vendors, handmade crafts, homemade cookies, brownies, cider, hot coffee, a handmade CD, horse rides, picture taking all played a part. The playful theme of children, horses, adults, all working together, made the book successful. Excitement, love, care, discipline, Emily, a positive outlook. The credits at the end, including the authors, and horse, complete the picture for me. ( )

Book description
This Middle Grade novel, appropriate for ages 7+, gleefully highlights ethnic and handi-capable diversity, the huge benefits of horse therapy, and the power of using your talents to bless others. Oh! And there are a lot of cool tidbits about horses for horse lovers too!

Jacinda Gonzalez, a Latina horseback riding therapy volunteer, who is bullied in her new school, decides to tackle meanness in the world by creating an Angels Club that goes around doing good deeds. She also takes on a malnourished and disheveled American Curly horse as a project horse, and it changes her outlook on people and gives her more confidence. Just as things seem to be turning around for the better, she's forced to make a heartbreaking choice between doing the right thing and losing what she loves most in the world.
