Why this series?: Well I can't put Harry Potter for everything, so this is my second favorite series. It was a tough choice between this and Heartland and Chestnut Hill, but I still have some frustrations with Heartland so voila. I really loved this series because it follows Sam over the years, from 13 years old till she is almost 18, and her adventures were truly wonderful. I already knew the world of Heartland when I was reading them, so it wasn't something new. I had never been out West before, never seen wild horses, and never experienced the Western lifestyle. There were a lot of things I didn't know, and a lot of things I learned. I think it also made the idea of America a little bit more bearable for me, as we were about to move back here and I didn't want to.
