Product Description

Welcome to Starlight Animal Rescue, where problem horses are trained and loved, abandoned dogs become heroes, and stray cats become loyal companions. It's also where people with nowhere to fit in find a place to belong.

In the first book by Dandi Daley Mackall, author of the bestselling Winnie the Horse Gentler series, you'll meet 16-year-old Dakota Brown. She used to love all things "horse" until she lost everything, including hope. The minute she sets foot on her foster parents' farm--Starlight Animal Rescue--she plans her escape. But can an "impossible" horse named Blackfire and this quirky collection of animal lovers be the home she's always dreamed of? Recommended for ages 8 to 12.

Publisher's Description

A new series by Dandi Daley Mackall, author of the best-selling Winnie the Horse Gentler series!
I've run away seven times—never once to anything, just away from. Maybe that's why they call me a “runaway,” and not a “run-to.”
Meet 16-year-old Dakota Brown. She used to love all things “horse” until she lost everything, including hope. The minute she sets foot on her foster parents' farm—Starlight Animal Rescue—she plans her escape. But can an “impossible” horse named Blackfire and this quirky collection of animal lovers be the home she's always dreamed of?
Starlight Animal Rescue: Where problem horses are trained and loved, where abandoned dogs become heroes, where stray cats become loyal companions. And where people with nowhere to fit in find a place to belong.

    Typical Dakota -"Wherever we are going, I won't be staying. That much I can promise. I've run away seven times -never once to anything, just away from. "

    Dakota Brown has mastered one thing:running away. Wherever Chicago's social services place her this time, she is determined to find a way out. But this new foster family isn't like the others. Something's different. People are nice, caring even. And there's an animal shelter nearby where Dakota can be with the horses whenever she wants. But she doesn't belong here, does she? She's just a foster, right? Her escape time is coming up, and Dakota doesn't know what to think.

    "Runaway" has a very interesting perspective, which I, for one, should probably read more on. Dakota has never had a good family. That's why it's hard for her to understand the concept of being a part of God's. The family, at least most of it, is Christian. They love Dakota, something she had never experienced with foster parents and siblings. Faith isn't described as much as it could be, though.

    On the technical side, "Runaway" relied very heavily on dialogue, which slowed down the story somewhat. And sometimes it was hard to tell what emotion the speaker was talking with.

    Overall, "Runaway" has a good idea and good suspense, I think (I kept wondering how and if she was going to run away) but I'd really like if there was more about God.

    I enjoyed reading this book. I liked the characters. I have read a lot of horse-related books, and this is definitely one of the better ones.

    Runaway is a heart-warming story about a 15 year old girl named Dakota. Dakota is a troubled young lady who does not easily trust due to being in 7 different foster homes. When her social worker takes her to the 8th foster home, Dakota with the help from friend, Niel plan to run away. However, things start to change for Dakota when she gets to her 8th foster home, which is a horse rescue farm. Dakota is crazy about horses and as she cares for a horse that needs her, she comes to realize how different this new foster family is. Has Dakota finally found a place she can call home? Will the horse she cares for survive and learn to trust again? I found this book to be very well-written and it is perfect for young readers who love horses

    Great takeaways for young readers

    I've read books from three of Mackall's series, and I think Runaway might be my favorite so far! This book features a 15-year-old girl who is placed with a foster family who lives on a farm in the middle of nowhere. The family takes in kids and animals in need, which makes for some interesting happenings! The mash-up of animals and kids was great. And I loved that the story featured a normal (although sort of odd) family who truly displayed the love of Christ through their actions. Lots of great takeaways in this book. This was the first book in the series, and I would love to keep reading the series to see what happens with the other kids. [4.5 stars]

    This review was written for Runaway - eBook.
    Wonderful book to help kids understand where they belong and that even though things may go wrong in life there is always light at the end of the tunnel. Its a great story for any child especially those who love animals but also a pleasant read for adults.
