Rated 5 out of 5 by from Alice Rocks!!! I love the Alice books! They're about a girl who has to face the same problems as I do. I think every girl should read them. They're very interesting and exciting; yet you can't put it down once you start reading it. All I have to say is that the Alice series ROCKS!!!
