Dizzy Miss Lizzie by R.M. Clark is the story of thirteen-year-old Kasey Madrid. Kasey decides to spend the summer in her new home instead of going to camp. The house is a creepy old place built in the nineteenth century. The creepy factor in the story is enhanced by the presence of Lizzie Bellows, who is from the nineteenth century. It takes some time for Lizzie to convince Kasey that she is not a ghost. The difference of living in different times does not stop them from being good friends. As the summer comes to an end, Kasey learns more about Lizzie and her own past. She finds out that Lizzie is part of a family secret. Kasey has to help Lizzie clear her name. Will she be able to go back in time and unlock the secrets?

The story adopts the interesting theme of time travel where two girls are from different times. The plot is thrilling and fast paced and holds the attention of the reader till the very end. The adventure, mystery, and intrigue angles have been worked out well by the author and woven into the story with great style. Both the characters are fun loving and the mystery surrounding Lizzie Bellows ignites the curious minds of young readers. It is a kind of mystery that all children will love reading. The contrasting times and the two girls trying to reduce the gap of years between them to become friends is what makes it an exciting read. An excellent story with the interesting concept of time travel woven with mystery, adventure, and intrigue.
