A decent book,
This review is from: Alice, I Think (Paperback)
Anyone who wasn't satisfied with Alice, I Think should re-read it. I found it quite...odd at first, and would have given it 2 or 3 stars after the first read. However, after re-reading it twice, and reading its sequel, Miss Smithers, I enjoyed it far more. I think it is a book that you need to get used to. The author's style is really something that's an acquired taste.
However, I think that whoever thought the mention of Internet porn was awful...all I have to say is welcome to reality. I am a teenager, and my friend who is younger than I am has read this book without issue. I have seen much worse things in books, and it's simply ridiculous that it wouldn't be appropriate for 16 year olds. (Besides, it WASN'T in great detail!) And anyway, it's a _journal_. I'm aware Alice is fictional, but if that happened, you know, it happened. I keep a journal myself, and I'm sure it's extremely boring at times. I mean, please. This is hardly the height of inappropriate literature. I think this is a grossly misguided idea.
Anyway, sorry for snarkiness. This was a pretty good book.
