Eleven-year-old Velveteen Vargas is a Dominican living in poverty in Brooklyn with her hardened mother and coddled little brother. The Fresh Air Fund opens a door to country life in the Hudson Valley and the opportunity of mingling with and eventually riding horses at a nearby stable. Each chapter is told from a different character's point of view, and carries the reader as if on the back of the mare as she picks up speed.
