Since Olivia's mum died Olivia hasn't felt right. Sometimes she can't breathe properly and she feels funny inside. When she is out on the farm with her dad and brother or tucked up under her blankets things don't seem so bad, but everywhere else she feels like she doesn't fit i...n. Olivia's father brings home a horse that's been through its own trauma and asks Olivia to see if she can help him. Together, Amigo the horse and Olivia grow to trust each other and forge a path through their own grief and anger. This fully illustrated junior story explores the stages of grief through a narrative that acknowledges the need for time and space in the process of coming to terms with loss. For any age and for everybody who has ever lost something they love.
