    Ida Early is amazing!

    I thought this was one of the best books I have ever read! The author pointed out a lot of comparisons in this book, such as 'Ida was as tall as a telephone pole.' I really liked how Ida exaggerated with tall tales. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes stories that you cannot put down.
