After her first counselor has a meltdown, Alice MacLeod and her new counselor decide that Alice?s horizons should be expanded. Enter Alice?s Life Goals List. It?s time to grow up, act her age, maybe even go back to high school after years of being taught at home. Alice is on the hunt for a look, a social life, a job, a boyfriend, and, most importantly, a half-decent haircut. But getting those things in Smithers, B.C., isn?t easy. Particularly if Irma of Irma?s Salon is in charge of the new look.

Sporting a new haircut that is reminiscent of a large construction helmet, Alice is attacked by marauding headbangers as she sits in the family station wagon in the parking lot of the Smithers Grocery Giant. Her mother comes to the rescue and the situation ends up in a brawl. An aging hippie chick who makes her children wear lead aprons in front of the computer, Alice?s mom is just one of the novel?s wonderful and wacky characters.

Alice, I Think is about that all-important good haircut, the one that has the potential to change your life. It is also about becoming who you want to be, on your own terms.

Written in diary style punctuated by Alice?s often caustic wit and ability to drop-kick the pretensions of family, high school, dating and work, Alice, I Think is often hysterically funny, a terrific new take on adolescent angst. First published by a small press in 2001, the book is being brought to the wider audience it deserves. Now the first of a six-figure, three-book deal, Alice, I Think is a global sensation, with HarperCollins US, Australia, and UK all publishing this remarkable book.
