"Red" is about a horse loving girl named America. She and her family have just moved halfway across the country for her Dad's job. It's a whole different kind of riding on the east coast, so what's a barrel racing Midwestern girl to do? When her dad starts dating the owner of a local horse farm, America is so desperate to be around horses, she'll do anything, even try riding english. America also has to deal with making new friends, being a junior at Avon High, and adjusting to the idea that her dad's girlfriend has been around longer than any other. Oh, and there's a cute boy who has caught her attention too.
