AGONY OF ALICE
York : Atheneum, 1985.
McKinley's project for her new school is to find an adoptive mother among
the teachers. Her own mother died and her father is now a single parent.
When Alice is assigned the pear-shaped one who doesn't wear lipstick, doesn't
drive a sports car and doesn't take the kids on the camping trip, she's
not sure she'll find any map for living following Mrs. Plodkin's example.
This is a good story -- with a lot of humor -- if you've ever felt a bit
klutzy and self-conscious, this story should mean a lot to you!
