If Horses Were Wishes by Elizabeth Sellers I really loved this book because it was a great new idea about a girl who turns into a horse, and her trying to decide whether life is better that way. It is about an island called Thisby, where the sea is home to the beautiful but deadly Capall Uisce water horses. Each November there is a race on the beach of the Capall Uisce.
