Alice McKinley is on the verge of starting 5th grade, and things are totally up in the air.
This is supposed to be the year that she and her friends rule the school…but one of her friends suddenly moved away without saying a word. On top of that, Alice’s father is dating again, everybody’s talking about the birds and the bees, and an unexpected loss shakes the McKinley family to the core. Oh yeah, and the whole family is going to be MOVING at the end of the year!
Basically, Alice has a whole lot weighing down her little shoulders, and she handles all of her many trials and tribulations with her characteristic humor and charm. Maybe this will be the year Alice McKinley finally gets her act together….or then again, maybe not. Either way, following her adventures will be a lot of fun for older readers. Lovingly Alice is the perfect segue to the rest of the series, which continues with The Agony of Alice. 978-0689844003 Ages 10-13
