A sheltered girl. A wild horse. An unforgettable journey.

Maya lives like a captive. At Grandmother's house in California, everything is forbidden: friends, fun, even memories. And her life is built on lies: lies Grandmother tells her about her dead mother, lies Maya tells to impress or manipulate. But then she moves to the vast Wyoming wilderness where her mother's family awaits -- kind, rugged people who have no tolerance for lies. They challenge Maya to confront the truth about who she is. And a mysterious mustang called Artemisia waits, too. She holds the key to Maya's freedom. But to find it, Maya will have to risk everything, including her life.

Paint the Wind is a whimsically wonderful story! i absolutely loved the adventure and the fact that Maya is just a normal girl (aside from the grandmother) and the horses. Also the fact that it is partially told from the horse's point of view really enhances it.

I suprisingly enjoyed this book. In fact I liked it to the point that I read it a couple times! It was an interesting book, well written and interesting. A good and refreshing read, even if you're not a fan of horses (I'm not)
