If you liked Alice, I think you'll love this book in which Alice enters the Miss Smithers Pageant. Alice makes us realize not everyone has the skills we take for granted, such as the ability to cut a steak and to not spend $4oo on leather pants. Alice takes a trip down memory lane while watching the antics of the other contestants. She, also, makes some new friends when she joins a Christian group and a self-defense class. Will this home schooled vegetarian ever become a normal girl? And more importantly will she win the pageant? You've gotta read to find out.
