The God of Animals by Aryn Kyle

[ Edited ]
A Compelling Coming-of-Age Debut


Book Cover Image: Title: The God of Animals, Author: Aryn Kyle Buy It In this poignant debut novel that some are describing as The Lovely Bones meets The Horse Whisperer, 12-year-old Alice Winston is a loner struggling to deal with her dysfunctional family out in the middle of Desert Valley, Colorado. When her glamorous older sister elopes with a rodeo star, Alice is left to deal with a depressed, bedridden mother, a gruff, overworked father, and their dilapidated horse ranch. During one long, fateful summer, Alice is torn between escaping her burdensome life at the ranch, and helping her father save it -- and their family's dreams.


An insightful and heartbreaking coming-of-age tale, The God of Animals is poised to be an unforgettable debut from a talented newcomer.


Be sure to join Kyle for our Book Club discussion of The God of Animals throughout the month of June!

I just finished The God of Animals and loved it! I grew up on a ranch and her description of animal management and the relationships involved weave a familiar story. Cannot wait for the discussion! Highly recommend.

I know I will love this book also. And it even sounds like it will make a good movie if it ever gets selected for one.
