Not many people tell Liz Horton what to do. Liz often lets her emotions get the best of her, and she acts with her heart instead of her head. In fact, once she almost lost her best friend Mandy because of it. But when her father lost his job and they ended up homeless, Liz began to soften up. Liz is a bit of a tomboy who loves the mall, writing for the school newspaper and, of course, a good argument.
