    Well written horse fiction, that is also an engaging account of main character Grace s battle with anorexia While anorexia books are relatively common, it is unusual to find one that is equine related It shouldn t be unusual riding is a sport where being skinny is common and I would guess an awful lot of teens are feeling pressure to be thinner than they should be I ve read anorexia themed books that seem to glorify being skinny, and it was great to read a book that didn t do this Very we Well written horse fiction, that is also an engaging account of main character Grace s battle with anorexia While anorexia books are relatively common, it is unusual to find one that is equine related It shouldn t be unusual riding is a sport where being skinny is common and I would guess an awful lot of teens are feeling pressure to be thinner than they should be I ve read anorexia themed books that seem to glorify being skinny, and it was great to read a book that didn t do this Very well done male love interest who did not seem to influence Grace to be skinny, and he was also involved with horses, which makes him even better The horse parts of the book are very well done Grace works with some rescued horses, and the story is realistic instead of trite I have high standards for horse fiction and it really bugs me when the horses are inaccurate Author Tudor Robins is obviously familiar with horses and their care as well as riding, and it shows in her books Enjoyed it Recommend to anyone who likes YA lit, or horse related fiction

    Need a horse book for older teen readers The number one author I always turn to is Tudor Robins In Objects in Mirror, as in all her books, she expertly combines stunning horse knowledge and the precious bond between rider and horse with the every day challenges of being a young adult, growing up, and falling in love Objects in Mirror also incorporates themes of mental health and anorexia It is a beautiful, easy to love story that is sure to delight readers.Grace lives to ride She loves push Need a horse book for older teen readers The number one author I always turn to is Tudor Robins In Objects in Mirror, as in all her books, she expertly combines stunning horse knowledge and the precious bond between rider and horse with the every day challenges of being a young adult, growing up, and falling in love Objects in Mirror also incorporates themes of mental health and anorexia It is a beautiful, easy to love story that is sure to delight readers.Grace lives to ride She loves pushing herself on the temperamental but brilliant jumper Sprite So when Sprite is sold and the chance to show him each week removed, Grace is instead offered the chance to work at Stonegate and help rehabilitate an abused mare But the contrast between abused and starving Whinny and the pressure Grace is under to constantly monitor what she eats and the numbers running through her head and on the scales hits a little too close to home With the support of her stepmother and fellow stable worker, Matt, Grace must choose between the horses she loves or the numbers she clings to.Complex, moving and yet light and fun, Objects in Mirror is the perfect contemporary YA horse book I loved Grace s relationship with the horses in this story She is a talented rider, but her respect and love for these animals is what really shines through While Grace juggles the demands of her new job and caring for Whinny she is also facing great personal battles The way Grace battles anorexia is a realistic step by step process and she needs and draws upon the support of those around her The romance in Objects in Mirror is a sweet addition to the story and Matt is wonderfully supportive of Grace and yet he challenges her and pushes her I also particularly loved Grace s relationship with her stepmother and how this grows and changes over the course of the events of this book Objects in Mirror is the first book in the Stonegate series and I look forward to sharing this and future titles with our library readers The publishers provided an advanced readers copy of this book for reviewing purposes All opinions are my own.Findreviews, reading age guides, content advisory, and recommendations on my blog Madison s Library

    Sometimes objects in the mirror are nothing but a distorted version of the truth.This book is one of those books that you just want to give to everyone because it opens a window to what it is like living with an eating disorder Not only do you get to read what it feels like to have the disorder, but how the illness affects everyone, family, friends and yes in this case, horses.Grace is in a constant battle with herself She knows she has to eat, but when she can go without food, she feels a Sometimes objects in the mirror are nothing but a distorted version of the truth.This book is one of those books that you just want to give to everyone because it opens a window to what it is like living with an eating disorder Not only do you get to read what it feels like to have the disorder, but how the illness affects everyone, family, friends and yes in this case, horses.Grace is in a constant battle with herself She knows she has to eat, but when she can go without food, she feels as if she is in control of her life She has a counsellor from hell, Dr Kellor who sees the disorder but not the patient As does her absent father, who cares so much that he wants to sends her to a specialist boarding school for those with anorexia, but doesn t seem to want to spend any time with his daughter at all He hasn t seen her for so long that he doesn t even know her and yet, he feels it is his right to decide what is best for her life Neither her father or Dr Kellor understand how important horses are to Grace, but thankful, her step mother and Matt, a colleague, does And unlike the paid professional, Matt knows just what buttons to push.There is a scene in this book where Matt does something so utterly fantastic that it transforms the way Grace looks at herself, hopefully forever It is a scene that will stay with me for a very long time I won t give away spoilers, but pleaseread this book I loved this book, and I think it can do a lot of good to those struggling with an eating disorder and for those who want to understand it There is plenty of equestrian action too and a charmingly sweet romance.I Highly Recommend.I received a copy of this book from the author for review consideration

    Source Received from the author for reviewI was happy to have the opportunity to review a book by a local author Goodreads summary Grace is looking forward to spending her summer weekends at horse shows riding new and spirited horse Sprite to the medal podium But things don t always go as planned It seems that her summer is ruined when Sprite is sold by the riding stable to a new owner Other opportunities present themselves however Grace is now going to live her dream She will be spending Source Received from the author for reviewI was happy to have the opportunity to review a book by a local author Goodreads summary Grace is looking forward to spending her summer weekends at horse shows riding new and spirited horse Sprite to the medal podium But things don t always go as planned It seems that her summer is ruined when Sprite is sold by the riding stable to a new owner Other opportunities present themselves however Grace is now going to live her dream She will be spending all summer working with horses in her new job helping the trainers at the stables With handsome new coworker Matt and a fragile, damaged mare that needs extra special care, Grace s summer seems perfect She can t hide from the truth though the eating disorder that she is starting to acknowledge but not truly understand is rearing its ugly head and threatens to derail everything Will she be able to heal herself along with the horses she is caring for I enjoyed this book Right away, I liked Grace She was a nice, likeable girl but when we come into the story, she seems to have been dealing with an eating disorder for some time The author interview in the back of the book reveals that she had an eating disorder in the past, and I think she s written a story that presents the state of mind of someone with an eating disorder really well I felt that I could follow Grace s reasons and motivations for her behaviour.In addition to Sprite, the horse she s been riding, being sold to a new owner, Grace is dealing with some family issues Her father lives in England, leaving her to live with her stepmother and younger brother While they get along, Grace s stepmother is attending counseling with Grace for her eating disorder, which causes tension between the two of them But Grace is offered a job at her stable, which seems like the perfect way to spend her summer she can avoid meals and burn extra calories, not to mention working with the very cute Matt all summer Things seem to be going well, but through peeks into Grace s journal where she tracks her calories and exercise she seems to be on the edge of losing control.I really liked reading about working at the barn and horse riding It s a totally different world, and I don t think I ve ever read any books involving horses I haven t even read classics like Black Beauty I really enjoyed reading a contemporary story that managed to feel unique from the others I ve read before.The romance that developed between Matt and Grace was sweet It moved slowly, which I found realistic, and I liked that Matt challenged Grace He could see what she was doing to herself with her eating disorder and wasn t going to be willfully blind to it There was an especially great section of the book where the barn takes in some mistreated horses, and Grace had a moment where she was tending to a malnourished horse and reflects on the way the horse had no control over the way its owner had treated it, yet Grace was purposely starving herself In the end, I was happy to see Grace on the path to healing.The story was well written, and at times I could feel myself in the fields with Grace, with the scents of summer on the breeze There was a late developing twist involving Grace s father that I felt like was resolved a bit quickly, perhaps because I was interested in learningabout her father and their relationship, but my overall opinion on the book is that it was a well written, enjoyable story, and by a Canadian author This is definitely a recommended read

    No surprise, I loved this book like I loved all her other books.Her bio at the end of this books states Tudor Robins is the author of books that move she wants to move your heart, mind, and pulse with her writing , and she certainly does that.I don t want to give any spoilers, so I won t get into the storylines All that really matters, is that Tudor Robins manages to weave several storylines together in a masterful way The book is beautifully written it flows, and pushes and pulls the read No surprise, I loved this book like I loved all her other books.Her bio at the end of this books states Tudor Robins is the author of books that move she wants to move your heart, mind, and pulse with her writing , and she certainly does that.I don t want to give any spoilers, so I won t get into the storylines All that really matters, is that Tudor Robins manages to weave several storylines together in a masterful way The book is beautifully written it flows, and pushes and pulls the reader s heart and mind This book is not full of heart pounding action, nor a rollercoaster of teen angst No, this book is even better It s very subtle and just the right pace It deals with important topics, but doesn t clobber you over the head, like some other books do Tudor Robins trusts in the intelligence and empathy of the reader to understand the topics, and feel struggles and victories of the characters That s what I value in a great story, and that s what I appreciate about the author, and which makes her one of my favourites.Final verdict highly recommended now I m clobbering readers in the head with a bat, but I am not a writer I was provided with a free copy by the author and publisher in exchange for an honest review

    I was lucky enough to receive this story from the author and am so happy that I got the opportunity to read and review it I love everything I ve read by Tudor Robins I really know very little about horses and horseback riding in general She always manages to explain everything just enough so I know what is going on with the horses but not too much to make it boring I always get such beautiful imagery with her books as well I could picture the riding and the stables perfectly I loved Grace I was lucky enough to receive this story from the author and am so happy that I got the opportunity to read and review it I love everything I ve read by Tudor Robins I really know very little about horses and horseback riding in general She always manages to explain everything just enough so I know what is going on with the horses but not too much to make it boring I always get such beautiful imagery with her books as well I could picture the riding and the stables perfectly I loved Grace as a character She is flawed in that she has been battling anorexia for sometime, but she has such an amazing support system around her that it was so inspiring to see her pull herself up and want to recover and want to get better not only for herself, but for others I think the relationship between Matt and Grace blossomed beautifully and very sweetly He seemed like such a genuinely nice guy and that s exactly what Grace needed A wonderful story overall I can t wait to read the next book by Tudor Robins

    This was pretty good, but not entirely I think that the portrayal of anorexia in this book was problematic though this is coming from someone who has never suffered from an eating disorder It seemed that she wasn t trying until the romantic interest wanted her to It could easily be triggering for someone who has had an eating disorder in the past, but the story was addicting and kept me reading
