So, if you've read my blog for long, you'll know that I am a big fan of the Alice series by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor. It had taken me a long time to get to Outrageously Alice and I had been looking forward to reading it. This is another book that I will blog about sooner or later, so I won't spend too much time talking about it now.
But here are the things that stood out for me in this reading. Alice lives with her father and her older brother. There is such a remarkable relationship between the three of them - one that is so rare and fun. They are good to each other, and both her father and her brother have roles in raising Alice. Alice is curious, and there are lots of questions that she asks each of them (or both of them together!).
Also, in this book in the series, Alice is struggling with who she will be, both now and as a grown-up. She wants to be "not boring", which can sometimes cross the line into outrageous. She's also learning how to interact with boys, which is interesting too. As always with these books, there is lots to think and write about. I am looking forward to writing about this one on the blog too!!
