By A Customer on November 10, 1998
Format: Paperback
I read and reread this book so many times as a "preteen"........the characters are wonderful and lovable, hilarious...I am sorry to see that the sequels to this are no longer in print...what a shame. This is an excellent, absorbing book for younger adolescents.

Format: Paperback
As a 12-year-old, I immersed myself in the fascinating and poignant world of Al. I really identified with her -- she is be-spectacled, precoscious, spent a lot of time alone, and came from a non-traditional family, but she was never "victimy." Rather, she seems to make the most of things, possessing a sort of a bittersweet pragmatism and independence that serves her well. I will never forget that Al read the Sunday New York Times cover-to-cover every weekend -- even the ads and the classifieds. I am 37-years-old and think of that almost each time I read the Times.
