THE BRIEF FROM THE AUTHOR
Sadie – a petite brown-haired tomboy with the courage of Thor and nicknamed “Sparkplug” because she throws off sparks.
Elana – yellow-blonde hair, often worn in a thick, long braid over her shoulder, wears turquoise cowboy boots and tiny gold unicorn earrings
Horses – Elana has horses and a baby foal is a prominent element in the story
Knitting and Yarn – the girls are avid knitters
The book is about “knowing” and keeping secrets, growing up (coming-of-age), friendship, and not all darkness. It has a positive message.
