World-weary past her years, Danae activities a skull-in-heart T-shirt and perpetual scowl, whereas Lucy embodies unbridled optimism together with her horsey grin. From their first assembly at summer season camp, to Danae's "sneaky but noble" plot to coach Lucy as a advisor horse for the blind (they do exist!), to an unplanned day trip to Santa's Workshop (in Maine, no longer the North Pole), Danae and Lucy flip the cliché of a sentimental woman and her horse the wrong way up and inside of out. With Lucy and Danae, Wiley Miller has came upon a profitable mixture that readers cannot resist.
