The Ride to Jubilee by Ellen G Adler

The Ride to Jubilee by Ellen Gibson-Adler features the young life of an army brat, Nelle, who tries to cope with the family moves from Tokyo to Alaska to Texas and finally Louisiana. Her love of horses and nature provide an outlet while she adjusts to new schools, emotional pitfalls and dysfunctional parents. While in Texas during high school, she is guided by her grandfather and befriends a local farm boy. With her small circle of geeky friends and a kindly teacher, Nelle learns that she can make a positive difference in the community.

The author provides a different and interesting plot, a protagonist who the reader roots for and realistic dialog especially Nelle's internal thoughts. A great read for young and old!
