Rated 5 out of 5 by from IMPACT!!! I read this book when I was a little girl and it had quite an impact on me. The premise of the story made me believe that you could do anything you wanted to do if you just put your mind to it. I am now 30 and I still remember the book as it was yesterday. It was also the first book I ever read by myself and my parents were so proud. I would recommend this book to any child and parent as is gives us all the knowledge that anything is possible, even at a young age.
