Summary
Eleven-year-old Yonder stopped talking when her mother died, and she stopped going to school because of the bullies, knowing that her father would never even notice (although the social worker did); indeed the only creature that seems to care about her is the one-eyed Shetland pony called Dirt who lives on the neighboring farm--so when she discovers that Dirt is about to be sold for horsemeat she is determined to find a way to save him
Summary
When a cruel neighbor decides to sell her curious if out-of-shape Shetland pony for horsemeat, the pony's only friend, a scrawny 11-year-old girl, resorts to desperate measures to save him
