This compact novella contains a gripping psychological tale, enlivened by wickedly sharp insights into contemporary small-town life in China. 

Yun Yun lives in a small West China town with her widowed father and an uncle, aunt, and older cousin who live nearby. One day, her once-secure world begins to fall apart. Through her eyes, we observe her cousin, Zhang Qing, keen to dive into the excitements of adolescence, but clashing with repressive parents. Ensuing tensions reveal that the relationships between the two families are founded on a terrible lie.

"White Horse mesmerizes from page one as events unfold through the unassuming lenses of a child’s mind. In recounting how young Yun Yun is trying to make sense of real-life experiences in an adult world, author Yan Ge weaves a fascinating tale of receptive hearts, rebellious spirits and hidden secrets infused with cultural values in this small Chinese community." —Dunia Magazine

"Wow, another complete corker from Hoperoad publishing with the most amazing Chinese brush art throughout, and a story that many tweens/teens will wholly identify with despite its setting. Superb stuff from Yan Ge." —ReadItDaddy
