Alice has always tried to be a decent person. She gets good grades, comes home on time, and has never really given her dad and her stepmom any reason to worry. But now that junior year of high school has started, Alice is a little sick of people assuming she's a goody-goody, so she decides to start shaking things up. First there are the dates with Tony, a cute senior who's a lot more experienced than Alice. Then the fights with her stepmom about the new cat, the car, and everything else start. But when Alice sneaks off to a party that her parents don't know about and a near-tragedy follows, she starts to realize every choice has a consequence, and danger rarely leads to good ones.
Funny, realistic, and always provocative, Phyllis Reynolds Naylor does it again, proving that she understands what real girls think and feel, with this twenty-second book in the beloved Alice series.

Mistakes and quarrels, big and small, drive the plot in the twenty-second novel in the popular Alice series about coming-of-age now. In high school, Alice, 16, is preparing for the PSATs, but what really worries her is that some members of the mean, popular crowd have labeled her Miss Goody Two-Shoes. Are they right? That may be why she risks going home with hot Tony, who, condom ready, tries to go all the way. Is he just adding her to his long list? And anxious to escape that dull, good-girl image, she is sorry to find herself acting mean toward slow, needy student Amy. At home what makes Alice feel really bad is her shameful invasion of privacy when she inadvertently eavesdrops on Dad and her stepmom having sex. The dialogue is right-on, and whether it is the risk of irresponsible teen driving or the farce of her older brother's mix-up with his girlfriend, teens will love the funny, honest, nonmessagey drama on the edge.
