In this first book in the Jillian to the Rescue! series, we meet twelve-year-old Jillian as she struggles with grief at the loss of her parents. Forced to move to Arizona to live with a grandmother she barely knows, and an angry uncle who carries a long-standing grudge, Jillian’s loneliness threatens to overwhelm her. That is until she rescues an abandoned Arabian mare, and both of their lives are changed. Their bond gives Jillian newfound confidence that helps her to find friends, and foes, in the Arizona desert. While Jillian endeavors to find a way to tell her grandmother about the horse she so desperately wants to keep, her Uncle Aaron secretly plots to ruin her plans--in the most horrifying way.
