Alice Upside Down
It’s been six years since her mother died, but poor Alice McKinley can’t quite get over her death. Her memories are fuzzy and starting to fade. Now she’s being forced to move to a new town by her musician/music store owner, father Ben. Along with her older brother Lester, she will have to try and fit in with a new crowd and a new class. Unfortunately, instead of getting assigned to the cool teacher, Ms. Cole, she ends up with the notoriously difficult Mrs. Plotkin. Hoping to make friends, Alice joins the Theater Club, but when she ends up with a minor role in the school play, she figures that nothing will help her awkward social transition. Yet some advice from an unusual source will end up helping her acclimate. It will take quite a bit, however, to straighten out little Alice Upside Down.
