If you feel down you should read this book. It is a very good book and it was a very good inspiration to me. There are a lot of tough situations in this book so it took a while to read and understand what Lizzie was going through. I loved how Lizzie found hope again and fixed her problems by facing her fears, even though this is the opposite of what her dad told her. I am glad I read this book and learned that there are different ways to trust people. This is a good book for ages 10 and up.
