  • customer reviews
Senior year is a big deal, and it’s full of huge decisions and the very best kind of memory making—but, for Alice McKinley, her last year of high school is being overshadowed by some very difficult situations. A sudden increase in vandalism at the school leads Alice to discover an angry and violent group of students—teenage Neo-Nazis. And if that wasn’t bad enough, an awkward hallway encounter gets Amy Sheldon to confess that a new, attentive teacher has been taking advantage of her. All at once, Alice’s safe and comfortable school starts feeling strange and serious—all this plus the normal senior year pressures of college applications and life-making decisions. It’s no wonder Alice is feeling like she can’t cut loose and have a good time. She’s getting older; Alice knows that—but does the world have to throw everything at her at once?! Here’re her options: step up or melt down. The choice is simple and true to the character that readers have loved for years:Alice steps up—and in a big way.

There was the usual safety assembly the first day of school. But the principal opened it with announcements of the two deaths over the summer: a girl who drowned at a family picnic, and Mark, killed in a traffic accident.... see more
