Beginning to the real Alice series the first one after the pre-series books of alice when she goes through 3rd, 4th and, 5th grades. This is the start of a great series that shows how Alice is going to act with the problems she will encounter.
In this book she has moved from Takoma Park to SIlver Springs for the first time and gets into a huge problem from the beginning. She keeps a list that shows the good things from the bad things. Will she be able to show that she is a mature adult in front of her only parent and her brother Lester.
She goes to school hoping for the beautiful Ms. Cole and gets the horrible Mrs. Plotkin. She wishes to show everyone what she can do but makes a total fool of herslef when she spoke rudely to Mrs. Plotkin to get switched to Ms. Cole's class. The guy she opened the door of a dressing room in the beginning of the book is a fellow safety patrol member, Patrick. What will happen to their relationship will he hate her or like her.
This book is encouraging to the rest of the series. I love this book and hope that you do too. Read the rest of the series too it is also awesome.
