Alice has a "To Do" list that changes totally over the course of this engaging novel. As she transitions from home schooling to an alternative program at the local high school, Alice's quest for belonging, love, and a "look" involves a riot of characters. Against the backdrop of a dysfunctional family, including a fish fanatic brother, a hippie mom, and a poker-playing writer father, Alice tests out her new self. Angela Goethals narrates with the underlay of humor that Juby champions in her writing. Goethals steps back and lets Alice explore and evolve as each situation develops while crisply defining each amazing character. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 03]
