The Agony of Alice (Alice Books)

The Agony of Alice - Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, Kam Mak I picked this up as a quick weekend read and at first I wondered why it was on my shelves. But it soon became clear it was an above average teen/'rites of passage' fiction.
The language is clear and with a good story that doens't lag, the occasionaly skips in the time line helping to keep it on pace.
It is sensitively told without any contrived situations or heavy-handed employed to get across the underlying message.
I will be passing it on to my teenage daughter.
