From the Publisher
Editors Note Senior year is a big deal, and it’s full of huge decisions and the very best kind of memory making—but, for Alice McKinley, her last year of high school is being overshadowed by some very difficult situations. A sudden increase in vandalism at the school leads Alice to discover an angry and violent group of students—teenage Neo-Nazis. And if that wasn’t bad enough, an awkward hallway encounter gets Amy Sheldon to confess that a new, attentive teacher has been taking advantage of her. All at once, Alice’s safe and comfortable school starts feeling strange and serious—all this plus the normal senior year pressures of college applications and life-making decisions. It’s no wonder Alice is feeling like she can’t cut loose and have a good time. She’s getting older; Alice knows that—but does the world have to throw everything at her at once?! Here’re her options: step up or melt down. The choice is simple and true to the character that readers have loved for years:Alice steps up—and in a big way.
Annotation Alice is in the first semester of her senior year, but her life hasn't gotten any easier. While it's great to be the features editor for the school paper, the responsibility can be overwhelming when combined with researching colleges, maintaining her grades, and struggling to understand her relationship with Patrick. However, when a neo-Nazi group targets a new Sudanese student, Alice is determined to do something. And at the same time, one of Alice's friends is experiencing unwanted attention from a teacher. In the midst of the drama and intensity of life, Alice comes through it all more mature and wiser. This is the 22nd book in the beloved Alice series, which frequents the American Library Association's list of most Challenged or Banded Books.
