About the Author

Jan Brett and her husband, Joe, have visited Botswana three times. Their guide, Ali Tiego, told them the true story of the honeyguide, and then the legend—if you don’t share the honey, the next time the honeyguide will lead you to a lion! “Ali taught us that large cats could be hiding anywhere, especially under the candle pod acacia,” Jan says. “In Tswana, the language of Botswana, this shrub is called ‘the house of the lion.’”

How does news travel without any telephones? “It’s a bush telegraph, we were told. Ali is always listening to the sounds. The yelp of a jackal or a guinea hen’s cackle spells out a whole story—if you know how to listen."

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.
