The book I read was Reluctantly Alice. This book was by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor. This book was mainly about a girl named Alice, in the beginning of the book she starts Junior High and finds it very difficult, because it's like a whole new world for her. Her boyfriend is ignoring her a lot and in a way they kind of break up, because they both have troubles of their own, but are still best friends throught the book. But Alice's mother died when she was a very little girl and sometimes has that a mother can only answer, and that kills her a lot. During the first month or so Alice is actully enjoying junior high and with a positive attitude. Until she gets on the wrong side of the bully at schol, and, well I don't want to give to much information, you will just have to find out for yourself. What i liked about this book was just the fact that it was a really good book, the conflict really interested me, because I also loved the topic. The author used a happy and most of the time scared voices because of the bully, and Alice always with her friends. The author didn't use a lot of challenging words so it's an easy read. The characters seemed real because the author was very good at explaing the characters. I am very used to reading this authors book, because I have read all the Alicfe book, but overall I liked this authors writing style. I liked the ending of this book, it ends with Alice, her brother and her dad, being the three musketeers, and always sticking up for eachother. I would recommend this book to anyone who is going to start Junior High, and also for girls, because its's more of a girls book then boys, I know that a lot of girls would ebjoy it. In conclusion I really liked this book, and hope others' will to.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
