The inspiring novel about real life princess and equestrienne Haya of Jordan.

Princess Haya loves her family more than anything--especially her mother who brings light and happiness into King Hussein's house. So when Queen Alia is killed in a tragic accident, Princess Haya is devastated. Knowing how unhappy she is and how much she loves horses, Haya’s father, King Hussein, gives her a special present: a foal of her very own. And this foal changes Princess Haya’s world completely.

Set in an exotic locale where royalty is real, this story of a determined modern-day princess is both beautiful and awe-inspiring. Perfect for fans of Black Beauty, Misty of Chincoteague and anyone who wonders what it's like to be a real princess.

"Empowering and vigorous, this is a story sure to please princess fans, horse fans and, yes, even tomboys."--Kirkus Reviews

"
This real princess’s story is great and this book provides a positive and powerful story, especially for adolescent girl readers who choose to saddle up for the ride."--VOYA Magazine

"
Horse enthusiasts will devour Gregg’s engaging novel about Jordanian Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein, inspired by the real-life princess who became an Olympic equestrian....Gregg’s greatest strength is in detailing the deep, sensual bond that can form between a human and a horse, but the sympathetic protagonist and a setting rarely seen in middle-grade fiction make this an inspiring read for any reader."--Publishers Weekly
 

"In addition to being a great fit for fans of princess or horse stories, this would be a good choice for readers who enjoy stories of brave, scrappy girls who defy convention."--Booklist
