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.

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
I think every girl who reads this will be able to relate to Alice in one way or another.
