Every Day After is a very good book about a girl named Lizzie. Her dad left when she was 9 or 10 years old. Not long after he left, her mom got sick and stopped talking. Lizzie did not want anyone to know about her mom because she feared if they found out she would be taken to an orphanage, so she hid her Mom. Lizzie then runs into struggle after struggle including Erin a bully, a letter from the bank that says money is needed or the house will be lost, and losing a best friend. Lizzie found a job at Mr. and Mrs. Hinkle’s store and things started looking up. Then her problems got worse; Erin found out about her Mom. How will Lizzie have the courage to keep going?
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.
