    I just love this series In a way it reminds me of the Ramona Quimby series, which I grew up reading Alice and Ramona are very similar characters I look forward to reading the rest of this series at some point.

  3. Kirsten

    As Alice gets older, the books get better, I think Each one is still pretty light weight, taken on its own, but the whole run adds up to something really nice.

    Moving right alone with Alice 8 Alice starts eighth grade and learns all about choices and their consequences.Alice and her friends take a course on making critical life decisions, in which each student is given a hypothetical life altering situation marriage, unintended pregnancy, DUI and must figure out how to make the best decision given the cards their dealt This leads to arguments, laughs, and a lot of insight into what some of the hard facts of growing up entail.Outside the assignment, Ali [...]

    I d never read one of the Alice stories, so I thought I d read this one before shelving it Alice and her Health Class peers are assigned Real Life projects along the lines of What Are the Consequences of deciding to get married, getting caught shoplifting, getting pregnant, getting someone else pregnant, getting caught drunk and driving, etc This sounds like such a great idea for a class assignment, but I don t honestly see 8th graders doing such a great job winkling out the details of what happ [...]

    Wow, reading this at 13 and re reading it at 20 make me realize how different I ve become I pretty much agreed with Alice on most accounts when I first read this, and now I m definitely like Lester This is such a sweet book, and it was hilarious at a few points Pamela s so funny And then there were the sweet, sad points I love the Alice series, and this is probably one of my favourites I loved the idea of Critical Choices, and how it was executed A quick, light, heartwarming read that ll remind [...]

    Another great Alice book This one follows Alice and her friends as they all have different assignments for different life changes The goal is to see what kinds of decisions they would have to make given their unique circumstances It was fun to see how each of the girls carried out their assignment research Pamela was hilarious pretending to be pregnant with a pillow Lester is in his Marilyn phase in this book, but Crystal makes an appearance toward the end with a surprise for Lester I won t spoi [...]

    I think this was the last book I remember reading in the series back in elementary school possibly middle school I remember I really liked it the interesting scenarios that were assigned as projects Very entertaining as always From now on I have no idea what to expect, except I read a ton of spoilers and summaries

  12. MarinnaC

    Alice was an enjoyable character to follow, and this was one of the first books in this series where the plot actually takes off Well, as much as it can about an 8th grade without a supernatural plot It s sweet and the characters are nice to follow.

    Another good installment in the Alice series I wouldn t say that there was anything that made this novel amazing but I did think the concept of her class project with hypothetical scenarios was truly interesting I wish I did something like that when I was younger because I think it really would have been an eye opening learning experience.Even though this specific installment in the series didn t stand out to me, I believe each installment brings something to the series as a whole I really would [...]

    Alice and Patrick have to plan a pretend wedding for a health class assignment about life choices and planning Patrick upsets Alice by grumpily describing their plan, which actually sounds kind of nice, as an el cheapo wedding Friends have hijinks with their own assignments, such as Elizabeth researching cars and Pamela pretending to be pregnant A climactic plotline of the book revolves around the cool guy health teacher, who is described as being Robert Redford cute this book came out in the 80 [...]

    Unfortunately, I did not get to read the Alice books in order, so Alice in Lace , which I bought from alongside Alice the Brave was a novelty One thing that bothered me about this book is the false sexual harassment allegation against her teacher by another girl that Alice intervenes in It s not that I think her response was wrong, but I was like really Other books in the series talk about genuine sexual assault, but it still felt like a tired narrative to use people overestimate the amount of f [...]

    I was probably just a little too old for the Alice series when it came out in the mid 90 s This book would ve been perfect for me it was about a girl whose Dad owns a music shop The Melody Inn and who is growing up in Maryland where I grew up I found out about this book because it had been a very controversial book, probably because 8th grader Alice naturally wonders about sexuality This book harkened back to simpler times when in school, you might actually learn something practical, such as a u [...]

    Child me 5 starsAdult me 5 stars For the first book in a child teen middlegrade nostalgic book, I am going with the rating younger me would have gone with, then if I read on in the series, I will rate the books what adult me believes it should be rated If the book is a stand alone, I will go with whatever rating I feel most comfortable giving the book Please note, I do not really think books should have an age limit People should read what they want to regardless of the intended age group, excep [...]

  25. Tina

    I loved this series when I was younger It s not very long, and not terribly deep or complicated It s actually kind of like Judy Blume lite, but that s not a bad thing I think it s a testament to Naylor s work that I can revisit this series and still enjoy it as much as I did when I was a teenager, and not think it s corny Some books series can t stand the test of time, but this one could, and did.
