Appaloosa Summer Summary:
Sixteen-year-old Meg Traherne has never known loss. Until the beautiful, talented horse she trained herself, drops dead underneath her in the show ring.
Jared Strickland has been living with loss ever since his father died in a tragic farming accident.
Meg escapes from her grief by changing everything about her life; moving away from home to spend her summer living on an island in the St. Lawrence River, scrubbing toilets and waiting on guests at a B&B.
Once there, she meets Jared; doing his best to keep anything else in his life from changing.
When Jared offers Meg a scruffy appaloosa mare out of a friend’s back field, it’s the beginning of a journey that will change both of them by summer’s end.

Praise for Objects in Mirror by Tudor Robins:
“An authentic teen voice paired with a contemporary setting steeped in riding terminology makes this book stand out.”
- Canadian Children’s Book News
"Writing teachers often suggest to write what you know, and it is clear that Robins has done just that, with great success.”
- The StarPhoenix
"Objects in Mirror is well-written and compelling ... It’s an excellent choice for a novel about anorexia, because it’s not a story about an issue; it’s just a great story.”
- CM Magazine
