Kate stared at the rickety wooden bridge. There were boards loose on its narrow walkway. There was no railing to hold on to. She was afraid to cross this bridge even in daylight. But she had to cross it now. She had to get to the train station in time to stop the midnight express. When a heavy storm destroyed the bridge over Honey Creek, near Kate Shelley's home in Moingona, Iowa, fifteen-year-old Kate bravely rushed out into the storm, saving the lives of two men and preventing hundreds of other lives from being lost. This is the true story of a young girl's resourcefulness and courage in the face of great danger.

User Review  - Laura - Goodreads

Excellent true story of a young adult with an incredible amount of courage. The book contained several answered prayers and interventions from God. Very inspiring! It is an easy reader, maybe appropriate for grades 1-2. Read full review
