A Horse in My Kitchen
by Joe Novara
Luz, an eleven-year old Latina, finds a half-frozen newborn foal and gets her African American friend, Zan, to help keep it alive in her kitchen. Luz’s hard working mom directs all the affection Luz longs for onto the baby horse until Holly grows past the ‘cute’ stage. The costs and realities of keeping a growing horse bring mother and daughter together in a dramatic ending.
