Though funny near the beginnig, I completely agree with Twoey Gray that this book has very little plot line and is overall not great and I would not recommend it. Though, the author seems talented despite this novel.

I LOVE this book and its sequel Miss Smithers. They're "YA" but are hilarious for any age over 12. Alice is by turns clueless, irreverent, brave, and wise beyond her years. Her forays into "alternative" adolescence - shopping for vintage clothes, getting a hip haircut, cheering up her therapist, Death Lord Bob - crack me up every time.

Alice starts the journal that is this novel at the request of her therapist. She seems to think it is a way to find a future career, but it turns into a chronicle of her day to day existence.

Alice is a poster child for the angsty teen. In therapy because of her inability to make friends, Alice thinks of herself as being far more together than the adults in her life. Her last therapist had a meltdown infront of her. Her current therapist seems to only want to talk about himself. Her parents are hippies. Her mother's folk festival friends are the definition of BC wierd. Her dad's friends are slackers.

This book is not as funny as it thinks it is, but Alice's bang on observations of modern psychotherapy and the joys of living in small town northern BC make this book a wonderful read. The world weary teen girl in your life will identify with Alice quite quickly and may even start to emulate her. You have been warned.

Don't let the cover fool you, this book is a fantastic piece of young adult fiction! Home-schooled after an unfortunate dressing-like-the-hobbit-on-her-first-day-of-kindergarten incident, Alice is pretty socially retarded. It doesn't help that she has super loving hippy parents. If you read Alice, I think, you'll get to experience re-integratration into non-homeschooled life from a pretty hilarious perspective.

Whenever I need a pick-me-up I pick this up. Which is inappropriate because I borrowed it from a friend and haven't given it back yet.

This book had many great jokes and the first few chapters made me laugh my pants off and want more. As the book progressed I was more and more displeased. It turned out to be a book form of Napolean Dynamite-a plotless book about a geek's adventures. Not recommended (though funny in some parts).
