Books I've read: We're just gonna go ahead and say all of them that I own...XD

About the first book: (Meet Kaya) It's hard for Kaya not to boast about her beautiful, spirited Appaloosa mare, Steps High. Kaya wants to be one of the very best horsewomen in the village. But when boasting leads to a daring bareback race, Kaya puts both herself and her horse in danger. And she also endangers her little twin brothers, who've wandered off into the woods during Kaya's race. Although Kaya finds the boys unharmed, she still must face a punishment. All her friends must, too, since one person's actions affect the safety of the whole village. Kaya's mistakes earn her a terrible nickname - will she ever be able to lose it?

Opinion: Okay, so I'm just giving an opinion on all of these put together because I am not going to type out reviews for every single one of these right now! XD As you can probably tell, I really love the American Girl books! The sets like Felicity or Samantha are so short I can read one in less than half an hour usually! I love the story lines for each one and the fact that each one is in a different time!
