Synopsis

Alice Next Door by Judi Curtin

Best friends NEED to be together. Don't they? Poor Megan! Not alone is she stuck with totally uncool parents, and a little sister who is too cute for words, but now her very best friend, Alice, has moved away. Now Megan has to go to school and face the dreaded Melissa all on her own. The two friends hatch a risky plot to get back together. But can their secret plan work?

Reviews

comic excitement ... Underpinned by a delicious, unmerciful presentation of adults as seen by the two girls. First class stuff.' Tony Hickey - Village Magazine Village Magazine

engrossing story with a real insight into the world of pre-teen girls Publishing News

'Where this book succeeds so well is in showing the repercussions that decisions made by adults have on children and the ways in which, accordingly, they must live through these. A happy-ever-after scenario is not presented at the end of the novel, but then this would not be feasible either for Megan or for Alice. At once perceptive and humorous, this novel will doubtless strike a chord with many young readers.' Jake Hope - www.Achuka.co.uk

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
