    Phyllis Reynolds Naylor was born in Anderson, Indiana, US on January 4, 1933.Her family were strongly religious with conservative, midwestern values and most of her childhood was spent moving a lot due to her father s occupation as a salesman.Though she grew up during the Depression and her family did not have a lot of money, Naylor stated that she never felt poor because her family owned good books Her parents enjoyed reading stories to the children her father would imitate the characters in Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer and her mother read to them every evening, almost until we were old enough to go out on dates, though we never would have admitted this to anyone By the time Phyllis reached fifth grade, writing books was her favorite hobby and she would rushed home from school each day to write down whatever plot had been forming in her head at sixteen her first story was published in a local church magazine.Phyllis has written over 80 books for children and young people One of these books, Shiloh, was awarded the Newbery Medal in 1992, was named a Notable Children s Book by the American Library Association and was also Young Adult Choice by the International Reading Association.Naylor gets her ideas from things that happen to her or from things she has read Shiloh was inspired by a little abused dog she and her husband found The little dog haunted her so much that she had to write a story about him to get it out of her mind.

    I think of this as the summer job book, but Alice s job as a stock girl at a department store is really only a small part of the plot It s my favorite part, though, because I think Alice s experiences and feelings about work proud to be employed not by her dad, glad to make a paycheck, bored stiff by what she actually has to do, mixed feelings about letting her friends use her employee discount, failure to understand the proper chain of command view spoiler leading to getting unexpectedly fired [...]

    I actually really like this one It had a nice balance of teenage drama with real life issues, a line that PRN does not always succeed in walking But this one was genuinely heartwarming and handled Big Issues without being overwrought or sappy I think I m also inclined to enjoy the books that I remember most vividly, and for whatever reason, this one stuck in my mind the trip to the beach, the summer job, even some of the descriptions and imagery I also appreciate the lack of romance in this one [...]

    I think I m officially over the Alice series It s just not as interesting as I thought it would be The language has become rather easy and the chapters are so short and transparent The title to each chapter gives so much away and isn t the least bit original, like Total Humiliation Lame Each chapter covers than one aspect of the story, and each aspect is only mentioned in 1 2 pages before moving to something else Sometimes, things don t even connect, and other times, the author puts in things t [...]

    I have always enjoyed these books, but now that I live in the same county in which they are set Montgomery County, Maryland I find myself feeling as though I am in the know about things in ways that other readers might not be When Alice names specific roads or landmarks, I often know where they are, and when she talks about living in Silver Spring and Takoma Park, I can now picture what those towns look like I always connected with these books on some level, but I can also relate to how neat it [...]

    I love the Alice books, but this one is not one of my favorites It s still a wonderful read because Ms Naylor is a wonderful writer, but I found parts of it a little tedious As always, I love the characters, I love the way important social and relational issues are addressed, and I love the poignant ending What felt tedious to me though was what came across as day by day journaling and I found myself wanting to get to the end of the book as quickly as possible It s still a good read but just not [...]

    This book was very touching and soft spoken I love the details and realistic fiction of it all I love the fact that none of this has happened before yet it feels like i m reading someone s real life story I can relate to Alice completeley during her struggle to find a job, embarrasing period accident, bumping into ex boyfriends, grandfather s illness, her stepmother and friends I hope that anyone who sees it on a library shelve will pick it up.

    Liz
    This book is about a girl name Alice, who have problems like teenage girls today I find this an interesting and fun book to read, the author had made me want to read and know what will happen next But, some parts in the book were quite boring and hard to understand I like The Gloomy of Alice better than this one The ending kinds of end so suddenly which made me lost a little bit of interest However, this was a good book to read.

    I love the ALICE books They re a modern Betsy Tacy a series where the heroine grows up, maturing through each book Most of the ALICE books are 5 stars and this one came close, only the ending felt like a continuation to the next book Of course I plan to read the next books and know I ll love them This series in brave, heartwarming and all kinds of AWESOME.

    Good thing I m almost doneey re all starting to run togetherummmer before junior year, and Alice gets a new job at Hecht s department store Her friends are starting to break away Jill and Karen are getting cliqueish, Brian is smoking pot, etc and Lester is bummed over a break up.

    Brian
    Alice gets a grueling summer job, one of her friends gets very sick, and a few other major life events happen This book wasn t quite as event packed as some of the previous Alice incarnations, but overall, it was good addition I m getting nearer and nearer to the finale

    Sarah Mae
    Another good addition to the Alice series I thought the way Alice lost her job was a little unrealistic How many businesses hire someone and don t inform them of procedures for taking time off Maybe it happens a lot, I ve just never experienced it.

    Kris
    I have read all of Naylor s Alice books, and I am always checking to see when the next one comes out They are realistic fiction and tell the life story of a young girl, her family, and her friends I think the latest is Incredibly Alice, 26 in the series.
