Synopsis:Fourteen year old Tovi thinks finding a flying horse is fabulous luck - until a mysterious stranger says finders aren’t always keepers. When fourteen year old Tovi Taggert moves to Honeysuckle Hollow to take care of her grandmother, she has a hard time fitting in. For one thing, she’s been tagged with the hated nickname Too-Tall Tovi. For another, everyone at Honeysuckle Hollow High believes Tovi played the Choking Game with someone else’s boyfriend – and made out with him besides. As if she doesn’t have enough problems, after the latest stand-off in the school hallway, Tovi finds a gorgeous speckled egg nestled in a feather lined nest. She takes the egg home – and mysterious visitors begin appearing almost immediately. Even more worrisome, whatever is inside the egg starts chipping its way out. When the egg hatches, revealing a winged horse, Tovi’s troubles multiply. As she struggles to return the horse to the magical land where he belongs, Tovi must make a courageous decision – and accept what that decision will cost her.
My Thoughts: I might be a sucker for stories that involve animals. Horses being one of the big ones, I've always wanted a horse of my own so really enjoyed reading about the adorable Zephyr. Look at that little cutie on the cover! This was a pretty quick and easy read. It's a bit younger than what I generally read, I think I would peg it as a younger YA/MG, the 12-14 range. But it was still quite enjoyable.
