When they first broke up, Alice couldn't imagine life without Patrick in it. But once she joins the school play and becomes more involved in the news-paper, she's busier than she's ever been before -- too busy to pine for Patrick and too busy, or so Pamela and Eliza-beth think, for them. As Alice spends more time with activities that don't include Pamela and Elizabeth, they grow increasingly resentful. And Alice grows increasingly confused by their behavior.
But they aren't the only people confusing Alice. Her new friend, Faith, is seemingly incapable of ending a relationship with her abusive boyfriend. And Alice has been receiving oh-so-intriguing E-mails from an admirer...who won't sign his name. As she tries to decide whether or not to meet her mystery fan, she also watches nervously as her brother Lester's crush on his graduate school professor begins to border on obsession.
As Alice completes her first year of high school, she learns that there IS life after Patrick, and that obsessions and jealousy can affect anyone. Phyllis Reynolds Naylor has done it again with this fourteenth book in the beloved Alice series.
