(2) YA Bits and pieces of the Cinderella story weave themselves through this startlingly original tale set in a Depression-era logging camp. Fifteen-year-old Edith and other orphans have been adopted to do the unceasing work at the camp. When mysterious seeds grow into wonderful horses formed of vegetation, the orphans escape, in an ending that is both surprising and eminently satisfying.
