The kids and I really enjoyed reading Thick As Thieves in the Circle C Milestones series. The author of this book is Susan K. Marlow, and the publisher is Kregal Publications. This book is recommended for ages 12 and up.
Thick As Thieves is a book about friendship, unselfishness, and compassion. The main character is Andi, who is a 14 year old girl who grows up in California during the 1880s. Andi’s biggest love is her palomino horse named Taffy. Andi has little time to prepare herself for Taffy’s first foaling, between her chores and school. When Taffy is about to deliver the foaling it almost ended up in a disaster, until Chad (Andi’s brother) and Andi help out Taffy. Andi has spent so much time with the foals that her grades start slipping. Andi’s mom has limited her time with the foals until her grades come up.
