On their way home from a horse show, Lizzy and her parents encounter a small dog darting perilously close to the freeway. Compelled by compassion, they rescue the frightened animal and welcome him into their family, naming him Freeway. His origins and intended destination remain a mystery, sparking curiosity and wonder.

Freeway proves to be a bundle of joy and energy. He’s affectionate, brave, independent, and playfully mischievous, delighting in accompanying Lizzy and her friends on their horseback rides across the moors.

However, intrigue deepens when Freeway mysteriously vanishes one evening, only to return with an unexpected and lavish item. Questions abound: Where did he find this luxurious gift? What secret adventures is Freeway embarking on?

One of Stella’s favourite memories is sitting around a log fire under the African sky sharing stories with family and friends – the sound of laughter and chatter. She grew up in beautiful, rural Zimbabwe, where she lived through a terrorist war, then moved to South Africa and now lives in Australia. Her life journey has been eventful with its highs and lows.  

Stella’s characters portray strong-minded women and close friendships. Even when all seems lost the determination to endure. To Stella, family and friends are everything.

    Just dropping by to share from my own experience that I would recommend Finding Freeway by Stella Perrott to be definitely worth considering as a gift for the YA readers in your life. And to add that, along with its prequel Finding Magic,, it's likely to be an unmissable hit if they’re into horses!, although it’s not a prerequisite. FYI the age groups of the main characters run from about 12 to 17, so there’s a connection for a range of readers there. I particularly liked its combination of everyday life, family and friendships; unexpected questions / intrigue / mystery and adventure running along on the back burner; the intersection of times gone by with the present; and very readable dialogue, descriptions and action scenes that keep the story rolling. And also, for the parent / grandparent / aunt etc who may be giving either of these books as a present, they also invite in what I found for this age group to be a constructive yet unobtrusive way a little bit of contemplation about life and stuff as well. I have heard that there’s another sequel on the way too which is great as it’s always nice to see kids getting tucked into a good series – and to have another gift up your sleeve for their next birthday or Christmas! Watch this space : )
