She just can't help wanting to help people—so why does she always seem to cause more problems than she solves?

Too bad the rest of her is usually in trouble! But she just might surprise herself when she learns there's more than one way to make a difference.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Suzanna E. Henshon
Lindsey Bergman, age 10, is an independent and spirited heroine in the "American Girl Today" series. As the charter character in this series, Lindsey sets the stage for all the girls of the year who follow. Lindsey loves helping people—and coming up with great ideas for making the world a better place. She enjoys cheering up her uncle, playing matchmaker between two teachers, helping to plan her brother's bar mitzvah, and looking for her lost dog. But unfortunately Lindsey discovers that sometimes people don't want or seek help; one of the teachers is already engaged, and Lindsey's brother is perfectly content planning his own bar mitzvah. Lindsey wonders when it is okay to help —and when she should steer clear of meddling. In this lively story, young readers will see the sometimes disastrous results that occur when Lindsey takes action. Readers will enjoy meeting another memorable, lovable character in the American Girl family. Reviewer: Suzanna E. Henshon, Ph.D.

Good, but not great. I gave it a 4 because I think girls about 8 or 9 would enjoy reading it versus girls 9 to 12. But I liked it, it wasn't bad.
