Description

Alice is ready for eighth grade, but she isn't ready for this summer. All her friends are spending their days swimming in the neighborhood pool-all of them except Alice. Somehow neither curiosity about her widowed father's new girlfriend nor the thrill of reading a forbidden book can distract her from her greatest fear: the deep end of the pool. Brimming with high spirits and courage, Alice the Brave tackles some of the biggest problems of growing up: conformity, popularity, and independence. Along the way, it offers good-hearted lessons about how much friends and family can help when solutions seem far away. Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, award-winning author of over 80 books for children, has earned a reputation for portraying young teens with honesty, compassion and humor. Alice is one her favorite characters. This lanky thirteen-year-old will win your heart, too.

Professional reviews

"Alice the fearful (of the deep end of the pool) transforms into Alice the brave during the summer before she enters the oh-so-cool world of eighth grade. Motherless Alice faces growing-up issues like independence, conformity and sexuality; she also longs to have a mother who can help her through it all. Narrator Christina Moore's almost sulking alto relates marvelously to the somewhat moody nonchalance of young teens. She captures Alice and her friends beautifully, their emotions and different personalities; Moore also does a respectable job with Alice's father, brother and aunt. Her flexible tones rise to laughter and silliness among friends and lower to anxiety and determination to overcome fear. Moore's solid performance paints a clear picture of Alice and the lessons she learns about the importance of family and good friends when problems arise. J.H.B. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
