Gr 4–6—After learning she might not be human in the first book (The Littlest Bigfoot), Alice starts searching for clues to discover if she really is part Yare—or what humans refer to as "Bigfoot." Unfortunately, her best friend Millie, a confirmed Yare, is too preoccupied to help her; Millie is busy devising a plan to audition for her favorite reality competition show while still hiding her true identity. Meanwhile, amateur Bigfoot hunter Jeremy is being threatened by a shady government organization that wants to find out what he knows about Alice, Millie, and the Yare. Weiner continues to expand both her characters and the Yare mythology while providing resolution to some of the last book's lingering questions, such as revealing the truth about Alice's origins. Readers will relate to Alice and Millie as their paths diverge in their pursuit of their own interests—which sometimes causes them to neglect their friendship—and with Jeremy, who struggles to do the right thing and protect Alice and Millie, even as he is pressured to reveal the information he's uncovered. As in the first novel, not everything is neatly resolved in the sequel, which ends on a cliff-hanger. Although Weiner provides some exposition, new readers will fare better reading the books in order. VERDICT Fans of the first book won't be disappointed with this latest installment.—Laura J. Giunta, Garden City Public Library, NY
"Fast-paced and full of questions, answers, more questions—and heart."
"Fans of a good mystery and sweet endings won’t be able to put it down."

when is the third book going to be out?
The story's two protagonists, twelve-year old Alice Mayfair and her Bigfoot best friend, Millie Maximus, are both a mission. But while Alice's mission is to undercover the secret of her past and live in the woods amongst the Bigfoots, Millie's mission is to prepare for a future in New York city as a singer onstage. Their friendship is tested when Millie befriends popular Jessica Jarvis, who helps Millie enter a singing contest - and Alice befriends Jeremy Bigelow, who helps Alice uncover what may be the real truth of her not-so-human history. But readers will find that this story takes some unexpected paths, leading both Alice and Millie to make some new discoveries. Their discoveries show them that while they are individuals with different dreams, they are also friends who are alike in many ways.
Readers who enjoyed the first book in the series, Littlest Bigfoot, will no doubt want to continue on this journey with Alice & Millie in Little Bigfoot, Big City. The ups & downs that the girls go through are relatable and will strike a chord with many young readers. The question of our humanity as well as our selves - who we are and what we dream of doing - is one that will resonate with many as well.
At its heart, this book is about looking past our differences in order to understand and live in the world together, and that is a message that I think should earn this book a place on many middle-school library shelves. The addition of the well-known historical mystery of Bigfoots and a secret (and possibly sinister?) government organization into the plot gives the book a unique flavor that will intrigue many students as well. A middle-grade novel that is poignant, fresh, and mysterious - Little Bigfoot, Big City is a book to share with the tweens in your life.
