Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Alice and Patrick are getting married! They have to plan a wedding and honeymoon and set up a home, all for five thousand dollars — as an assignment for a Critical Choices unit in health class. And some of their classmates are facing even tougher make-believe situations.

But sometimes Alice feels as if her real life is just as complicated. Critical Choices is supposed to teach Alice and her friends how to make decisions — but how can you plan for anything when life seems like an obstacle course?

Synopsis:

In this effervescent eighth entry in the wildly popular series, Alice isn't really getting married. But she and her boyfriend, Patrick, are thinking about it--for a health class assignment. And as she and her classmates research the nitty gritty details of planning a wedding they discover that being truly grown-up can be much more complicated than they ever imagined.

Alice has done it again in this thrilling book. As I read this book I feel lost in the pages and I can actually sense being there. Phyllis Reynolds Naylor just knows how to catch the attention of young readers. She can just change your mood just by reading one chapter of her books. This book deserves a two thumbs up!
