Waterstones Says

Both a heartwarming story about grief and family connection and a rip-roaring detective yarn, Finding Wonder sets Roo Thorn and her aunt on a mad dash around the country to prevent a spate of horse thefts.

A winning ticket. A stolen horse. The adventure of a lifetime . . .

Orphaned Roo Thorn feels like the unluckiest girl in the world. Until she discovers a letter. A letter which urges her to 'Grab life by the wings and fly.'

With the help of her aunt, Joni, Roo sets out to buy her dream horse - a fiery showjumper named Wonder Boy.

Then Wonder vanishes without a trace.

Determined to save him, Roo and Joni investigate his disappearance. But as the mystery deepens and more prize horses are stolen, the pair find themselves drawn into a thrilling - but dangerous - adventure . . .

How far will they go, and what will they risk, to find Wonder?
