Donna has always dreamt of riding horses, but her family could never afford to buy her any lessons. So when Lu, who would rather spend time at the shopping centre, is given some riding lessons for her birthday, the Sisters decide to pull the oldest trick in the book. But can they keep the double act going forever? This book is part of the very popular series Siti's Sisters, featuring Siti and her group of friends, who are so close they call themselves The Sisters. This is a short, low-level chapter book, with an easy-to-read, fast-moving narrative and is part of Set 1, which is suitable for ages 10+. The issues presented are, as always in this series, relevant and appealing to girls of this age. The Sisters are here!
