Starlight Shines for Miranda recently won the USA Book News Best Books 2004 award for Young Adult's. Distinguished review source, Children's Book Watch, says upon reviewing: ?this documents Janet Muirhead Hill as one of the truly skilled storytellers writing for young readers today.'Starlight Shines for Miranda, the fifth book of a highly acclaimed new series of children's fiction, will entertain and encourage; thrill and edify its readers. The bond of love between the black stallion, Starlight, and the twelve-year-old Miranda Stevens becomes very apparent in this fast-paced volume for middle-grade readers. A forced separation between Miranda and Starlight cause both the girl and the horse to go ?off their feed,? taking a toll on their health. The well-laid plans of Mr. Taylor, the crotchety owner of Shady Hills Horse Ranch, are in jeopardy until Starlight and Miranda are reunited and pitted against the clock in an effort to save Mr. Taylor from financial ruin. Many surprising adventures are interwoven into this wholesome story. Children identify with Miranda, Laurie, and Christopher; characters who face many contemporary challenges that have no easy answers.
