“I absolutely adore this book! I remembered the time when I went to the library and I noticed this cover right away. So I decided to check it out and after finishing it I finally found something that "understands me." The whole Alice series would impact my life and became my trustworthy favorites that never disappoints me each time I read the next phase of Alice McKinely's life =) ”betruetoyourself<3 wrote this review Sunday, December 23, 2012.

“Term 4 (144 pages)
If I could talk to the author about this book, I would ask her if this series was based on a true story. I think that it sounds somewhat realistic, and I think that it would be interesting to see if she based this story off of her life or something. I would also tell her that I really liked the way she described everything and everybody. It was in great detail, and I could clearly visualize it in my mind.
I think that Alice learned the hardest/most important lessons in this book. She had to learn that just because you don't get what you want in life, doesn't mean that your life is ruined. Alice learned that everybody has something good in them, sometimes you just can't see it. She also learned that even thought it is sometimes hard to see that good in people, you just have to try.
If I could change the ending, I would make it so that Alice gets to see Mrs. Plotkin again. I thought that it was kind of sad how she was such a good teacher, and then how she just says good bye and leaves. I wish that she had added a little bit more detail in that area. But all in all, it was a good book.”
