The Agony of Alice (Alice Books)

The Agony of Alice (Alice Books) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Alice McKinley is about to become a teenager, but she doesn't know how. Her mother has been dead for years, and what do her father and her nineteen-year-old brother, Lester, know about being a teenage girl?

If only she had a role model, like the beautiful sixth-grade teacher Miss Cole. But instead Alice gets assigned to plain, pear-shaped Mrs. Plotkin's class. Is Alice doomed to a life of one embarrassment after another?

Synopsis:

Right from the start, readers know that Alice McKinney is something special. In this, her very first book, Alice is in sixth grade, right on the cusp of adolescence and increasingly anxious about growing up in a household with no other females. "A wonderfully funny and touching story".--"Booklist", starred review.

Synopsis:

Since Alice McKinney burst onto the scene in 1985, she has addressed the issues tween girls care about with humor and sensitivity. Now, the first two books in Naylors beloved series are reissued with a fresh new look.
