From the Publisher:
Get ready to start your own incredible, amazing life…right?
Alice McKinley is standing on the edge of something new—and half afraid she might fall off. Graduation is a big deal—that gauntlet of growing up that requires everyone she’s known since forever to make huge decisions that will fling them here and there and far from home. But what if Alice wants to be that little dandelion seed that doesn’t scatter? What if she doesn’t have the heart to fly off into the horizon on the next big breeze? And what if that starts to make her feel like staying close to home means she’s a little less incredible than her friends—and her boyfriend Patrick?
Sometimes the bravest thing you can do is be honest with yourself—and sometimes the most incredible thing you can do is sneak a little fun into all this soul-searching.
It's the second semester of Alice McKinley's senior year, and she's starting to realize that her life is about to change enormously. Growing up has had its ups and downs, but Alice is finally about to step into adulthood. Deciding which college to attend, going to Prom, getting a summer job with her best friends, and finding out her boyfriend's plan to spend a year in Spain are just a few of the things Alice has to cope with. Told with honesty, humor, and directness, this is the 23rd book in the popular Alice series, which has repeatedly shown up on the American Library Association's list of most Challenged or Banned Books.
