If you like sarcastic things and manipulating people this book is right
for you. Alice is the kind of character that's not realistic at all. It
feels like the author makes home schooled children all mentally and
socially challenged (which is not true at all). Some part were funny,
but most of it was just average.




this book is written in a diary format which is approached in Alice's
point of view. I found it surprisingly interesting. The characters are
odd but engaging. The situations Alice gets into are very unlikely to happen in a small town in British Columbia.

Overall, this novel is just good. It's entertaining and well written.

the book Alice, I Think is about a girl named Alice Macloed in Smithers who goes through one hilarious moment after another from getting beat up my a physco girl in a parking lot, to a bad haircut, to carzy parents. This book is hilarious and I would reccomend it to anyone who is in the mood for a good laugh. At times I was laughing out loud!

When i first saw this book on the bookshelf i thought to myself: 'hmm, this book sounds kind of odd'. The plot sounded crazy but original so i read it; yes it was crazy and yes it was original!

Alice is a teenage girl struggling to establish herself in society after years of homeschooling. She must overcome her childhood enemies, way-too-crazy-to-be-true haricut and her counsellor (who appears to be drowning in the pool of reality!). Read this book and travel with Alice as she experiences all the ups and downs of teenage life.

I recommend this book to those looking for creativity, originality and humor!

Alice, I Think is an exceptional young adult fiction book because Alice deals with normal obstacles that actually do happen during the high school years and more. Even though its one of those diary entry books, later on the reader wont even. Its not that appropriate for smaller children because it has swear words and has sexual contents. A life moral taught in this book is never let an obstacle take over disadvantages, which means to never give up and not to focus on all the negative things that have happened. Literary devices were used wisely in certain areas of the piece. Examples of metaphors include That girl who attacked me is marauding white trash&, and Aubreys mouth is a door that will never close, I mean never ever close. An allusion was surprisingly also found, which was MacGregor has the brain of Einstein.... There werent many similes, but tons of alliteration like, Debbie doesnt do& and &cultural critic cannot&. Literary devices made the piece more absorbing for meaning. The pacing of the story was upbeat and ongoing. It did not drag a major event to every last detail so it was more decisive. The reader would always know when a suspenseful moment was coming because an unusual character like Linda would be in the scene to meddle with others. Some other characters had a major contribution to some extent. Alices mother became very nurturing when Alice was enrolled into school and when her arch nemesis, Linda beat her up. Frank had a disturbing situation which kept some of the attention off Alice. Death Lord Bob had a very important job of keeping both Alices and Franks feet firmly on the ground without going insane himself. Fish obsessed MacGregor helped Alice to believe that she could handle being in the outside world when she was starting school. He also was her best and closest friend. The resolution of the book didnt wrap everything up so the reader would be satisfied, but it left them questions to consider themselves. The book created an image that describes how difficult others have it in different situations that would put them at a disadvantage.

Alice, I think is a hilarious book about a teen that doesn't really fit in with anyone or anywhere.

This Girl, Alice, has a list of life goals and in the story she tries to accomplish all of her goals at the same time she gets bullied, laughed at, and its kinda sad.

But when you read this novel writting by Susan Juby you will seriously LOL all the way through.
It's one of the best books I read!!!

Alice, I Think is a hilarious book. It captures the "homeschool" voice of today. It's about a girl who has grown up being homeschooled entering a public high school for the first time. She begins her story with a mention of her first and only public school experience. When only about 5 years old she read the Hobbit with her father. Her mother made her a Hobbit costume that she wore continuously. She mentions wearing it to school and how the kids teased her.

The book takes you through her entry into public high school, the difficult times with her parents, her exploits on the internet, etc.

It is great fun to read.
