Alice se chová jako každá normální puberťačka a během pár stránek jsem si ji oblíbila. Jako vždy řeší nějaký malý rodinný problém. Alice ale vždy dělá z komára velblouda, a do všeho se vrhá bez rozmyslu a po hlavě. Nakonec se situace většinou vyvíjí ne úplně podle jejích představ.

Chování Jably jsem zpočátku nechápala, proč se s problémy někomu nesvěřila, ale pak mi došlo, že je záměrem autorky ukázat špatný příklad pro náctileté čtenáře, kteří by si měli uvědomit správné řešení problémových situ

Aww, man....
I started reading these books when I was about nine years old. I don't think I even read them in order at first, just got whichever ones I could find out of my schools library. I loved them. LOVED.

Eventually I figured out the order and filled in the gaps. And then proceeded to read the entire series about five times over. Those were the times.

Ally was my spirit animal in those days. She was a little awkward, wasn't quite sure where she fit into

I have finally finished the series. All fourteen books, in a space of ten days. I read the first four books in the series when I was ten or eleven, and I adored them. This January, I really felt like revisiting them, as well as continuing with the rest of the books in the series that were still in the garage. I was scared that I wouldn't like them anymore in case I felt that they were too young for me...but I think I loved them even more this time round. IT WAS JUST...SO... PERFEC

This book is soo sweet.
The main reason that Ive read it was that I actually met the author Karen McCombie the last time I visited Scotland, and attented the Book Fair. Karen was surrounded by so many girls, and she took her time to talk to everyone of the girls....and even me..

I looove Karen McCombies Ally's World series, because they are the most enjoyable books I've read. I've been re-reading them, so was very happy to see that as I grew older I never grew away from these! :)

Bei diesem Buch sollte man nicht vergessen, dass das Original 2001 erschienen ist. Daher stellt es das Thema Mobbing und wie man dagegen vorgehen kann zwar richtig dar, dennoch nicht ganz zeitaktuell. Andererseits gibt dies dem Buch einen gewissen Charme, wenn Abby Kassetten umdrehen muss, um weiter Musik zu hören, oder sie sich über die Neuartigkeit eines DVD-Players freut.
Die Figuren sind liebevoll gezeichnet, die Sprachstil flüssig und witzig; gut ausgerichtet für Mädchen ab elf Jahren.

Rowan's been acting strange (well, more strange than usual). One minute she's crying over who-knows-what, and the next she's tripping into the house with all this new stuff (which has to come from the shopping fairy, since I know she's got zero money). Just what is going on with my sister?

Série: Alice a ... .Tuto sérii jsem naprosto milovala.Alice je velmi vtipná a blázen.Oblíbila jsem si celou rodinu a mimo to i Alfieho.Rozhodně doporučuji sice je Alice 13 let,ale myslím,že knížku si můžou přečíst i starší. ;)
The topic of bullying is much more serious and complex and it doesn't really go together with the light-hearted writing style, typical for Karen McCombie.
