About this title


Alice decides she needs priorities in her life. What kind of future can you have if you don't plan? Priority number one: get Miss Summers, the beautiful English teacher at her school, to marry Alice's widowed father. After all, they've been dating for a year. The only problem is the vice-principal, Mr. Sorringer. He wants to marry her too. Love, Alice finds, can be complicated, even in her own life. She has been Patrick's girlfriend for almost two years. So why is she interested in other guys? But Alice isn't the only one with problems. Her friends Elizabeth and Pamela have their own troubles-- with family, with boyfriends, and with very personal matters that Elizabeth doesn't even want to discuss. If only there could be one day a week when things would stay the same: no embarrassing surprises. Life isn't like that, however, and Alice has to be ready for whatever comes next.

About the Author:

Phyllis Reynolds Naylor has been writing books since 1985, when The Agony of Alice was published. The reason these books are so hard -- and so easy -- to write, she says, so entertaining and embarrassing both, is because she sees herself not only in Alice, but in Pamela and ELizabeth too. There were times in her growing-up years when she did incredibly stupid things, times she took chances and was proud of herself, and times she wished the day could be erased forever from memory.

She writes for both children and adults, and is the author of over ninety books. The Alice books are The Agony of Alice; Alice in Rapture, Sort Of; Reluctantly Alice; All but Alice; Alice in April; Alice In-Between; Alice the Brave; Alice in Lace; and Outrageously Alice. Her book Shiloh was awarded the Newbery Medal in 1992.
