Author: Lisa Williams Kline
Publication Date: May, 2012
Genre(s): Middle Grade (contemporary)
Wild Horse Spring is the second installment of the Sister in All Seasons series. Though this time, it's the summer where they go to North Carolina. Diana and Stephanie are step sisters, who do not like each other very much. The first book was very interesting to see how their first reactions and feelings towards each other would turn out to be, but this book is different. It's the next summer these girls have to spend with each other, and another adventure of despise and jealousy. The book is told from both of Diana's and Stephanie's point of views. It was interesting to see both of the girls thoughts, and especially what both of them think of each other.
If you had to ask me, I'd more likely be friends with Diana. Diana is the type of girl who loves animals, and likes to explore the nature by herself. While Diana is so cool, and worries about other things, Stephanie is more of a girly girl. All she seems to care about is her clothes and hair, which is not wrong at all, but not my kind of thing. That's why she kind of annoyed me sometimes. The story was fine in the beginning, until we meet Cody. A boy to stir up the story. While I really hoped for some "romance" to happen between Cody and one of the girls, I was disappointed to find only friendship between them. Although, it was still fun to see Stephanie get jealous when Cody hung out with Diana, because Steph started acting like such a baby, it really got to my nerves. I was like HA! I hope Cody likes Diana so stephanie can go cry, but then i'd feel sorry for her. Stephanie annoyed me pretty much most of the time, but I can't say that Diana hasn't. Diana being mean and stubborn to everyone kind of pissed me off. She acted like such an attention-seeker, but I guess that's one of the problems separated families face.
Overall, I really think this book would be very fun for younger readers! I, myself, enjoyed it a lot. Though I have to say there wasn't a huge problem or major story in the book, it was kind of chill throughout, more for younger readers. It was a very fast read, and very fun as well! I do really want to pick up the third book in this series!
