Two Buckley Country Day School 2013 graduates, Angelique Simeone and Nefes Pirzada, age 14, co-authored and published a book entitled “Young Equestrian: Something in Common.” The book is now a success, with the help of Mrs. Barbara Thomas, their English teacher in fifth and sixth grade, as well as their fifth-grade advisor. Thomas also serves as the “Odyssey of the Mind” advisor, and coordinator of Buddy Program.
The horse lovers have been best friends since 3rd grade. This book was born out of a creative writing assignment given by Thomas in the fifth grade.
Each girl wrote a separate story about a young female protagonist and her love for horses. After the assignment, they both continued writing independently until they got together and realized the stories combined would create a great book.
