Alice is on the brink of being a teenager and discovering that life is just one big embarrassment. Things are not made any easier by the fact that she lives with her father and her brother. What could they possibly know about being a girl and growing up?
Alice has decided that she needs priorities in her life, and the first one on her list is to get her favourite teacher, Miss Summers, to marry her dad. The only problem is that Mr Sorringer, the deputy head, wants to marry her as well - and Miss Summers seems to be having a little trouble making up her mind! How can someone be in love with two people at the same time? It doesn't make any sense to Alice - until her friend Sam starts to pay attention to her. Alice likes Sam. He's quiet and gentle, a great dancer and she likes being with him. But Alice has been Patrick's girlfriend for almost two years - so why is she interested in another guy now? Love is so much more complicated than Alice ever imagined!
