In this charming repackage from a beloved series, Alice doesn t feel like fitting in.
Alice McKinley likes her life, but she senses things are changing. She gets a little bored by her best friends Elizabeth's and Pamela's obsession with clothes and makeup. She's just not that interested. And though she is very interested in her boyfriend, Patrick, she's not entirely sure how to keep their relationship going. Alice is struggling to figure out how she feels about things and then how her feelings fits into what other people "think" she should be feeling.
Getting older is even trickier than Alice thought is she ready for the challenge? As Alice stumbles her way through the minefield of early adolescence, there are plenty of bumps, giggles, and surprises along the way. Every girl should grow up with Alice, and with this irresistible new look, a whole new generation will want to.
