Publisher Description

Growing up—and slimming down—is the tricky proposition in this repackaged installment of the beloved Alice series.

The summer before ninth grade is all about getting it right—from head to toe. Alice and her friends want to start high school feeling like they always imagined a true high schooler feels: confident, capable, and pretty. But a little too much time standing in front of a mirror in their bathing suits makes Alice, Pamela, and Elizabeth feel the exact opposite of ready for high school. They have two-and-half months to transform themselves—but when Elizabeth starts taking the weight-loss plan too seriously, Alice worries that growing up (and slimming down) isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

As Alice stumbles her way through the minefield of early adolescence, there are plenty of bumps, giggles, and surprises along the way. Every girl should grow up with Alice, and with this irresistible new look, a whole new generation will want to.

I love it!!!

It's the summer between eighth and ninth grades and Alice, Elizabeth, and Pamela plan to hang out with their friends, work a few hours a week, and get in shape. Their early-morning runs and vows to eat healthier foods takes a dramatic turn when Elizabeth begins to look like skin and bones. Alice experiences the loss of her favorite teacher and Pamela has problems living with her dad. The three girls attend a workshop for girls only in which body issues are discussed, including weight and sexuality. Anatomically correct terms are used to describe both male and female body parts which might make preteen readers squirm, but they are right on target for 13-year-olds. Recommended for grades 7+.

Best series I've ever read

The alice series is really the best. I can relate to her in so many ways in which not all books can do. The way she learns and grows everyday by reaching goals, trying something new, or even embarrassing moments make her stronger. Great book for most all Young Adults or even a bit younger. Thank you soooooo much Phyllis Neynolds for this amazing series
