With graduation, a wedding, a pregnancy, and a college decision in store, the end of high school is harder—and more emotional—than Alice ever imagined.

Get ready to start your own incredible, amazing life…right?

Alice McKinley is standing on the edge of something new—and half afraid she might fall off. Graduation is a big deal—that gauntlet of growing up that requires everyone she’s known since forever to make huge decisions that will fling them here and there and far from home. But what if Alice wants to be that little dandelion seed that doesn’t scatter? What if she doesn’t have the heart to fly off into the horizon on the next big breeze? And what if that starts to make her feel like staying close to home means she’s a little less incredible than her friends—and her boyfriend Patrick?

Sometimes the bravest thing you can do is be honest with yourself—and sometimes the most incredible thing you can do is sneak a little fun into all this soul-searching.

Incredibly Alice is a slow, thoughtful novel that tackles the big questions about growing up, leaving high school, and taking that definitive step into adult life.

Given the tremendous effort towards building the depth of her character, making her flawed would have been so much more interesting.

This, I guess, is what I’m coming to dislike about the series: Alice never changes.

I feel like the early Alice books actually had plots, and this one is just a series of scenes.
