There’s nothing easy about being an eleven year old boy, especially for
Jamie. As he takes the unsteady steps into adolescence, his days of
knowing who his friends are and trusting the adults in his life are
numbered. The only thing Jamie can really count on in this changing
world is the love of his best friend, a horse named Acorn. Jamie and
Acorn’s friendship has a magic that comes once in a lifetime—but the
bullies around them want to rip that to shreds. Can their kindred
connection survive as Jamie strives to carve out his identity?
