BOOK REVIEW

FORCE OF HABIT by Alice Loweecey
MYSTERY THRILLER

ACHINGLY ALICE by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor
CHILDREN'S
Released: June 1, 1998

"Naylor continues to usher Alice, and readers, toward adolescence with this well-knit, frequently hilarious story, cemented with buckets full of information, reassurance, and common sense. (Fiction. 10-13)"
Readers who have, with Alice, been waiting impatiently for her widowed father and favorite teacher, Miss Summers, to pick a date will have to wait some more; the Alice series (Outrageously Alice, 1997, etc.) continues to feature comic twists, comfortably familiar characters who still have surprises to reveal, and a plot that includes some serious issues.
