About "Love and Muddy Puddles (Coco And Charlie Franks Series)"
Thirteen year old fashionista Coco Franks has finally made it into the popular group when her dad decides to move the whole family to the country so they can 'bond'. Social death is looming, her shoes are covered in mud and all Coco wants to do is get herself back to her city friends. After all, things can't get any worse, right? It'll take a boy with no dress sense and totally hick boots, and a contrary horse called Cupcake to bring Coco to her senses. But it might just be too little, too late. Love and Muddy Puddles is humorous realistic fiction aimed at children aged 10-14 and horse lovers everywhere. Set in Australia, this clean teen romance is a funny and inspiring story of how a horse - and a change of perspective and heart - can change a young person's life. Love and Muddy Puddles is the third novel by Australian writer Cecily Anne Paterson. Her first novel, Invisible, also a clean, realistic story for girls and teenagers, was called an 'exquisitely written story' by Publisher's Weekly reviewer of teenage fiction, and was a semifinalist in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Awards in 2014.

Even if you're not 13 and don't have children this is a super book. I loved the struggles. I loved seeing where poor choices end up. A wonderful book to raise issues of what is truly important and what is true friendship. NSW year 7 curriculum choosers. This would be a good one.
This book is so REAL. While Coco's situation might be a bit different to most teenagers (living in the bush and learning to ride horses) so many of her emotions and relationships are exactly what we all experience. The story seems quite simple, but I just couldn't stop reading it. I wanted Coco to make good decisions about how she was treating her family and friends, yet I totally understood how she was feeling. It reminded me of the importance of good friends. I cheered and my heart felt warm when she triumphed at the end. I'm telling all my young brave hearted friends to read this books. I'm also telling all my adult friends to read this book because it reminds us of the big emotions teenagers (well actually al of us) have and how valuable you all are.
