Hello! I've been looking for this book for a while and can't remember an awful lot except the beginning.
The young boy's brother dies and someone says what a pity it is that he didn't die instead as the older brother was handsome and clever etc etc.
Somehow this boy ends up dying to try and be with his brother and ends up in a fantasy world where he is someone special too (or all people are special?) and there's a horse (perhaps on the cover?).
Urgh, none of that is particularly helpful, but it's been really bugging me and thought someone here might know!
