Like the first book in the series, this book is engaging and enjoyable; it has the same little niggles in the style, which all the books will, and which I really didn't care about when I was closer to the target age range for this series.

I did enjoy this one less than the first, as I felt the characters didn't behave very well most of the time, and I was reminded that Sandie - whom I cited in my review of the first book in this series as a character I liked - has a serious flaw in her jealousy a...more

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...more

I am reading this book at the minute as i have just read the first book, "the past, the present, and the loud, loud girl" and i decided to read the sequel.Like before, i am enjoying this book but i dont think it is as good as the first book, it doesnt seem as funny and as good to read.
These books are very good to read because you dont really have to think about it- they are nice and simple and not too challenging.
I HAve now read this book... i am not sure whether i like it or not as much as the...more
OMG lolz x1000000000
so funny, it's unbelievable. it's a perfect balance where you got loads of funny bits but not too many so that it gets a bit unrealistic; brilliant. it's a book i can relate to; i suspected my mum of dating someone when she started being on the phone for really long stretches of time, and i would hear a quiet knock on the door in the middle of the night and then the door opening and closing. i knew months before she told me and introduced me, though i never told her i knew un...more

Dad is seeing someone. Like a Woman Someone. And it can't be our mum, because she's off travelling the world. There's only one thing for it - serious sisterly espionage. Hey, I know it's sneaky, but we have to uncover the awful (cringe-worthy) truth...

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 author was really able to wind in all the suspicion and clues that Dad was seeing someone, and depicted the emotions of the family quite well, I think. Also liked some of the Alfie/Ally stuff slotted in!

I'm only on page 50 but I'm already having to plough through this reluctantly. Perhaps it's my age. However, it did only cost me 10p from the library so I'll finish it none the less.
