"This wonderful novel is a delightful tale of a sweet protagonist as she comes of age during the summer of her youth. Readers of all ages will enjoy this journey with the precocious Lizzie and recall the triumphs and challenges of family visits that relate to one and all! I highly recommend Ms. Carter’s book for a trip down memory lane. Children will be served a big helping of fun!"
