Thirteen-year-old Alice sets long- and short-term priorities for her life as she experiences the complexities of young love

Although it's the second half of eighth grade, Alice McKinley doesn't feel she's figured things out any better than when she began.

For starters, there's her widowed dad and Miss Summers, Alice's seventh-grade English teacher. They've been dating for a whole year, yet no one's mentioned marriage. Even worse, Miss Summers' old boyfriend, the junior high vice principal Mr. Sorringer still seems to be in the picture. How can Alice keep him from stealing Miss Summers away from her dad??

Then, there's the whole issue of boys. While Alice knows she's lucky to have someone as nice and handsome as Patrick in her life -- even to be able to call him her "boyfriend" and know he'll ask her to all the dances -- there's still a part of her that wonders about the other boys at school. How does she know there might not be someone even better than Patrick? For example, there's Sam, a really nice boy in Camera Club who seems awfully interested in Alice. Should she keep trying to keep a distance in order to stay "loyal" to Patrick?

As if all this weren't enough trouble, Alice's best friends Elizabeth and Pamela need her support too. After thirteen years as an only child, Elizabeth became a big sister. It's a huge adjustment for her, now that the Price home suddenly seems to be all about crying, teething and diaper rash. And as for Pamela, what happens when your mother suddenly decides to run off with her fitness instructor? Poor Pamela, torn between hoping her parents can patch things up and between fury at her mom's destroying the existence Pamela has always known.

As always, Naylor writes her characters true to life. Alice and her friends may not have all -- or often, ANY -- of the answers, but they definitely have all the same worries and questions that real girls that age do. It's hard not to relate to Alice's life and hope for the best, right along with her.
I picked up this book because my 9yo brought it home from the library; flipping through it, I saw the word "sex" so I decided to look at it a little closer. I read it, and I have to say I am very disappointed in Naylor. I only knew of her from Shiloh, which was a good book, but this one is just *not*. I understand the character is 13, but this book contains detailed heavy petting, a conversation about "wife-swapping", a chapter on one of the characters getting a pelvic exam that emphasizes how embarrassing it is to get one and ridicules the doctor giving it ("Of all the things this guy could have been, he chooses a job where he spends the whole day looking at naked women", but not the necessity of one. Now I have to undo the damage this book has done to my daughter's idea of her first gyn exam.

Also, there is speculation on whether Alice's father is going to be sleeping with his girlfriend in their house; I mean, overall, this is a piece of junk. Why can't authors write decent, interesting books for young girls that don't contain so much emphasis on sex?

Very Pathetic.
I probably related the most to Alice in this book because of her sexual discovery and I think most girls will, too. Alice comes right out and says the stuff young girls are thinking and curious about and a lot of them are answered. If you are up tight and scared about bodily things, read this! If you're questioning where to draw the line with boys, read this! If you're wondering if you really are a womanly creature, read this! It made me feel a lot better and it probably will for you, too!
Blessed be!
Alice McKinley, thirteen years old has decided to become a person "who makes things happen" in the tenth book of this gentle, humorous series. Her first goal is to get her father and her favorite teacher, Miss Summers, to finally get married. Over the course of the novel her attempts to intervene backfire, as does her certainty about there being blacks and whites when it comes to love. Naylor's keen ear for dialog and sensitive understanding of the pains of adolescence make this book ring true and honest whether dealing with the nature of friendship, the quixotic moods of a teenager, the need to find the perfect outfit, or the scariness and exhilaration inherent in the budding of sexuality (pelvic exams and masturbation are discussed frankly). Although the book also deals with more serious issues of loss throughout the story, it does so with humor, sympathy and a light touch. I would highly recommend this book to younger YA readers.

Growing up is quite a thrill in Alice's life. She has ideas that no one else could even dream of sometimes. When she decides to take charge of her life seems like a good idea at first, after descovering that she really can't plan all that happens she learns this as a valuable lesson. I really enjoy her books and her adventures and can't wait to see what will happen to her next!
Over all, Achingly Alice was a really good book. Alice is trying to figure out how Mrs. Summers can love Mr. Sorringer and her dad at the same time, while she herself can't decide between Patrick (her boyfriend) and the cutie in her camera class, Sam. It's easy to relate to this book because it's set in present times in Silver Springs. Alice finally decides to wait it out and see what happens in the end when something suprising happens to Miss Summers. I would reccomend this book to girls ages twelve and up because of some of the things that happen to Alice and her friends. They are in eighth grade, so that is probably a good age to read this book.
When I got it i couldn't stop reading it! Its was soo good but really short! I think Alice and Patrick make the perfect couple but too bad they break up. (In a different one) I really reccomend this book but not to people under 10. (It gets a little too sexual at one point) This one really is the BEST ONE EVER!!!! :)
I love these Alice books but at the same time it is so anoying because I want to read all the books and not just wait for Phyllis Reynolds Naylor to write the next one. I can't ask questions very easily and these books answer some. Thanks to the author.
