The summer between sixth and seventh grade, the start of junior high, is an eventful one for Alice McKinley and her two friends Pamela and Elizabeth. For the start, they all have boyfriends. Alices boyfriend, Patrick, is extremely smart and has traveled a lot, so he knows a lot of things.

Patrick may be knowledgeable, but Alicewho has lived with her father and older brother Lester since she was five, when her mother diedcouldnt be more clueless, or so she believes. She doesnt know how to do her hair so it makes her look pretty, or buy nice-fitting clothes for herself, and she certainly doesnt know how to act around Patrick. Especially the kissing thing. Alice doesnt know how she feels about it. She likes Patrick, certainly, but is she ready for him as a boyfriend?

The wonderful Alice, first introduced to us in THE AGONY OF ALICE, returns to a summer of confusion and more growing up. Readers will cheer along as this extremely likable and flawed girl lightens up our lives once more and warms us with the remembrance of what the awkward years were like.
