Overview

Alice in Rapture, Sort Of by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor

According to Pamela’s cousin in New Jersey, the worst thing that can happen to a girl is to start seventh grade without a boyfriend. So Alice is glad that she and Patrick are going together. But Patrick the boyfriend is a lot more complicated than Patrick the friend. What’s an appropriate gift for Alice to give him for his birthday? What should she do if he wants to kiss her and she hasn’t just brushed her teeth?

Alice really likes Patrick, but sometimes it seems as though life would be a lot simpler if they were still just friends.

It¿s the summer between grade school and junior high. All of Alice¿s friends keep telling her everything you have to do to be a successful seventh grader. One is to have a skirt, but Alice knows that her parents won¿t let her get one, she doesn¿t want any skirts anyway, so that doesn¿t really matter. They also told her that she would need a boyfriend, so Alice is glad that she has Patrick as a friend, it also kind of makes her happy that her other friends like Elizabeth and Pamela already have boyfriends. So now Alice thinks that this will be the best summer ever, because she hopefully gets a boyfriend and she'll have a successful year!!!

I thought this book was okay...I was hoping for something better though. Alice is still as loveable and funny as ever, but this summer she has a boyfriend! It's quite an important time for Alice as she reaches her adolescence and wants answers to questions like, 'When is it the right time to say, 'I want you, I need you!' to someone?'. She even takes on the job of babysitting and in the end makes a very responsible decision, which I thought was really nice. If you haven't read the first Alice book, I suggest you take a look at that. I thought that was better. But all in all, this novel is a good read and I'd recommend it. =)

I picked this book for my 2009 banned or challenged books challenge. I noticed that the Alice series as a whole is frequently challenged. Since my library did not have the first in the series, I choose the second one. I was completely impressed with this book and intend to read the rest of the series. I wish I had known about these books in my preteen years. I though Alice was a wonderful character. While, the parts of the story were a bit outdated, I thought the dilemma's faced were very real. It was fun and lighthearted at times, but the message portrayed was very thoughtful. I'm hoping these stay in print so that my daughters can read them when they are older.

This is by far my most favorite book!!! i think Naylor is a genius for knowing how girls really feel about these things, and answer questions about growing up. even though i LOVE the rest of the Alice series this has been my favorite one and i enjoy re-reading it!!

This book was Fantastic! Naylor has done it again with this sequel to The agony of alice. Alice is just like me, in some ways. I think it is my favorite book since it reflects some similar things that happed to me. This book has comedy, romance, and definetly her embarassment! Really good, i recommend this book to anyone, but especially to girls with single male parents.

This book is one of the best books I have ever read. It's cool because it's very modern. It is about a 6th grader who finds herself needing a boyfriend. I also Luv the book because she goes thru everything a regular teenager would go thu only more because she doesn't have a mom. Find out more about Alice by reading this book. I HIGHLY recomend it!

I really liked this book because it follows my motto, that you shouldn't change yourself because of a boy. I also liked this book because it talks about the hard ships that girls usually go through before 7th grade. There are six main characters in the book and they are, Alice, Elizabeth, Pamela, Patrick, Tom, and Mark. The book takes place mostly in the summer with th first real boyfriend/girlfriend. They go through embarasing, fun,and memorable moments as they got through the summer before 7th grade. I chose this book because after reading the summery I knew I had to check it out. I really suggest that every child between the ages 11-13 read this book!

Alice In Rapture, Sort Of By Phyllis Naylor. Genre: Realistic Fiction. Reviewed by a 5th grade student. Alice in Rapture, Sort Of is a very good book about a girl named Alice who is 13. She has a brother Lewis, and a dad. Her mom died when Alice was a little girl! She's got two best friends named Elizabeth and Pamela. She has a boyfriend named Patrick. Her older brother is 22 and is still living in the house. Her dad is a manager at a music store. Alice and her friends go to the beach, and she isn't having a good time because her boyfriend isn't there. So her brother brought Patrick. This book is really funny. Elizabeth has no father, so sometimes she goes to Alice's dad and sometimes Alice goes to Elizabeth's mom. Pamela doesn't have a dad either, but she doesn't go to Alice's dad. If you like books about friendship, you'll love this book. Phyllis Naylor has also written Starting With Alice, The Agony of Alice, and Alice in Between. She has written tons of other Alice books. I recommend all of the Alice books! They are great!

I liked the book because it was a book you couldn't stop reading. It was awesome because it talked about boy problems if you are interested in them. It shows that you dont need a man to look good.

Of all the 'Alice' books, this one is defintely the best. It has everything that I could think of to be in a good book. Humor, fun, and semi-sophistacation.
