Warning: This is an independent addition to The Language of Hoofbeats, meant to enhance your experience of the original book. If you have not yet bought the original copy, make sure to purchase it before buying this unofficial summary from aBookaDay. INTROJackie and Paula knew that moving their two foster children and adopted son to the rural town of Easley might take a period of adjustment. However they never could have prepared themselves for their new neighbor, Clementine - a bitterly mean old woman who instantly and vocally disapproves of the idea of two women raising a family. The two household immediately clash over the issue of Clem's horse Comet when Jackie and Paula's troubled teenage foster daughter Star discovers that Clem has been neglecting the horse. Jackie and Paula offer to buy Comet from Clem, but she refuses to part with the horse that once belonged to her daughter, Tina, who tragically took her own life years before. Then when a desperate Star takes drastic measure, the two families are forced to work together to ensure the safety of the troublesome members of their family. The fascinating thing about The Language of Hoofbeats, and the reason the novel works so well, is that the two narrators, Jackie and Clementine, have such completely different perspectives on the same events, giving us a window into two incredibly diverse and complex personalities. In fact, diversity is a key component of this book, and readers will fall in love with the way Catherine Ryan Hyde handles topics of race, gender, sexuality and mental illness with deftness and compassion. This is a story about how families are made.SETTING The book takes place in the rural, unincorporated town of Easley, California, where Jackie and Paula have moved with their two foster teenagers and young adopted son, in order for Paula to set up her practice as a large animal veterinarian. Jackie, one of the book's two narrators, is initially uneasy about the move to this dusty town, anticipating small-town attitudes that might not look too kindly on a married lesbian couple with children. However with the exception of their antagonistic neighbor Clementine, no one in the town seems to have a problem with Jackie and Paula's family, and they even receive congratulations for the work they are doing with foster children. This seems somewhat unrealistic, as it is impossible to deny that homophobia still exists in the United States, but it is understandable considering the relatively low number of people Jackie and Paula seem to interact with throughout the book. In fact, the book is much more concerned with exploring the inter-family relationships than in discussing the attitudes of other townsfolk. The book's other narrator, Clementine, has lived in Easley all her life, but her disapproval of Jackie and Paula's family seems to stem from something other than her small-town values.

An immediate bestseller when first published, Pay It Forward captured hearts all over the world, became a wildly popular film, and spawned a generation of increased altruism. This anniversary edition includes a new introduction by the author. It takes an inspiring and moving tale of a young boy who believed in the power of kindness and brings it to a new generation of readers. Twelve-year-old Trevor McKinney accepts his social studies teacher’s challenge: come up with a plan to change the world. His idea is simple: Do a good deed for three people and ask them to “pay it forward” to three others in need. He envisions a vast movement of kindness and goodwill spreading beyond his small California town and across the world. The project, however, appears to falter. Jerry, a bum who receives some allowance money from Trevor, returns to a life of dissolution. Trevor wants his pretty, hardworking mother—a woman who raised him lovingly despite struggles with alcoholism—to marry his teacher, Reuben St. Clair. Reuben is a scarred, bitter, untrusting man with a disfiguring injury from Vietnam. He seems to come alive only when in front of his class. For a time that matchmaking brings nothing but problems. Ultimately, though, unusual things start to happen. Crime rates dip across the nation, and nobody seems to know why. Then a journalist tracks down the source: an epidemic of random acts of kindness. Anyone who has ever despaired of one person’s ability to effect change will rejoice in Trevor’s courage and determination to see the good in everyone.
