In this repackaged novel in a beloved series, Alice realizes she has a lot to learn about life!
Now that Alice is growing up, she is finding out answers to all sorts of interesting things—but the questions keep on coming. For instance: How exactly are babies made? Where has her best friend Sarah’s family disappeared to? And why is her father going to a concert with a woman?!
Alice isn’t too sure about any of these things—but on top of doing her homework, playing with Oatmeal, trying to keep Lester’s girlfriends straight, and setting her dad up with the school nurse, she’s going to have to find out!
Phyllis Reynolds Naylor has written more than 135 books, including the Newbery Award–winning Shiloh and its sequels, the Alice series, Roxie and the Hooligans, and Roxie and the Hooligans at Buzzard’s Roost.
