Alice Adams, the daughter of middle-class parents, wants desperately to belong with the people of "high society" who live in her town. Ultimately, her ambitions are tempered by the realities of her situation, which she learns to accept with grace and style. Alice\'s resiliency of spirit makes her one of Booth Tarkington\'s most compelling characters. A fascinating story that won the Pulitzer Prize.
