Now that she's finished freshman year of high school and survived her first breakup, Alice is pretty sure that she's finally got a handle on life. Dad and Sylvia are going to live happily ever after, Pamela can always be counted on to do something outrageous, Lester will always be there when she needs him, and Alice is way over Patrick. But when she heads off to be a camp counselor for three weeks with Elizabeth, Pamela, and Gwen, Alice is shocked to come home and find that everything has changed -- and not necessarily for the better!
Patrick surprises Alice by turning to her for help, Pamela's mother (who ran away with the NordicTrack instructor) is contemplating coming home, Lester's been offered a deal he can't refuse, and what's worse, Dad and Sylvia's happy future seems to have encountered some unforeseen complications. Finally, Elizabeth, who once felt that kissing was too much, goes further with a boy than any of them have yet! As Alice tries to cope with her changing world, she learns that life is never totally what you expect it to be and that even people you've known your entire life can still sometimes surprise you. Phyllis Reynolds Naylor does it again, proving that she understands what real girls think and feel, with the newest book in the beloved Alice series.

with her friends Gwenn, Elizabeth and Pamela and the little girls who they are responsible for. Alice has to deal with her brother Lester moving out and her father's fiancee Sylvia cancel their wedding because her sister got sick. In this book you really feel like not only do you know Alice in person but you can feel when she is disappointed or hurt. A great read an another hit for the Alice series.
The best part of this book was when all the kids who were homesick or thought they were "all that",change. For example, there is this girl who throws another girls shoes up on top of a big sign.So the counselor makes both of them go get the shoes and then shake hands and be friends.Then another girl is homesick until everyone starts making weave baskets. See you learn two lessons;Not to be rude or you wont have very many people that want to be your friend, secondly, always wait until you know what's going to happen,before you get upset.It has many lessons you learn in life.
The story elements that stood out to me were conflict and resolution.The times that conflict stuck out was when Estelle and Latisha were always fighting because Estelle was racist and Latisha was a "smarty pants".Another was when Alice and Patrick broke up, Patrick wanted to go back to Alice but she didnt feel the same.The resolutions that stuck out to me was when Estelle and Latisha got in a fight,and Estelle threw Latisha's shoes over a sign.Well the counselor Gwen told them they both had to get them down and then be friends and shake hands afterwards.In the end everyone was more mature and everything turned out great!
Alice's mother died when she was very young, so she's excited that her dad is finally marrying her English teacher from 7th grade. Alice and three of her friends, Elizabeth, Pamela, and Gwen, decide to be assistant counselers at a summer camp for three weeks, however, soon before the wedding. Alice and her friends have a lot of fun, trials, and tribulations at camp, but when Alice returns home, so many things have changed. The wedding is postponed, her 22-year-old brother Lester is considering moving, a friend is having family problems, and she even hears from her ex-boyfriend, Patrick.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes very realistic, humorous reads about life for a teenage girl who is not-so-perfect but somehow relates to all of us. Be sure to read the othes in the series, and if you still want more, try The Princess Diaries series by Meg Cabot or the Angus, Thongs, and Full Frontal Snogging series by Louise Rennison. Enjoy!
The plot is an exellent one with excitment and glory. Also it is one of the many books in the series.
Alice has decided, for summer vacation, to go to a summer camp for younger kids as an assistant councilor. She goes with her good friends Elizabeth, Pamela, and Gwen. Though she's excited about going, she is torn about wanting to stay home with her dad, a fiance. He will soon get married to Alice's high school algebra teacher, Sylvia.
Anyhow, she goes to this camp, Camp Overlook, and finds out it's coed. The more she hangs out with the boys, the more she realizes that she's not interested in romance. She finds out, though, that someone is interested in her!
Camp soon passes by, but when she comes home, she finds out that a lot of things have gone wrong. One of which, that contians Sylvia.
