The Agony of Alice | Phyllis Reynolds Naylor
post image

This week I completed my Phyllis Reynolds Naylor "Alice" collection - all 28 volumes (25 main series, 3 prequels. H.S. books are 3-in-1). I'm SO excited about it. I loved reading Alice McKinley when I was growing up and she ended up "in college" around the same time as me. These books are wonderful. Alice is like a best friend. I love how whether Alice is in 3rd grade or college, whether written in 1985 or 2013, her voice is still the same.

Published in 1944, this one begins with an interracial relationship and ends with a lynching and in between reads like a catalog of ugliness in the early-20th century American South. (And let's face it, not just the South). The prose is sometimes a bit overdone, but really it's the relentless angry-making subject matter that makes it a difficult read. Trigger warnings for, well, everything. Not perfect, but I'm calling it a pick for its insights.

Alfoster Remember loving this one too! 11mo

So ... I just finished this book.Less than 20 minutes ago and I'm still sitting here mulling it over. So much... Omg. I can't even fathom what those kids went through. I know it's just a book. But I can't help but think 4kids out there somewhere have gone through that. Maybe i just think that because it was written in first person-like a journal. Cathy was writing all of that down so someone would know. lookingglassbookshop.com for full blog 10/1
