In this sequel to Alice, I Think, 16-year-old Alice MacLeod begins to emerge from her life as an outsider and misfit as she makes new friends and tries new things, including eating meat, drinking, and entering the Miss Smithers pageant. This is a fun, light novel that takes the reader inside the crazy world of Alice, raised by hippie parents and home-schooled for most of her life. The small town setting is another thing that makes this book interesting and unique. Despite the stylistic similarities to other books about the misadventures of teen girls trying to fit in, Miss Smithers stands out. Its the perfect book to take along on a summer road trip. Fans of Alice, I Think wont want to miss this second novel.
