4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Series for Young Girls..., April 14, 2012
This review is from: Alice-Miranda on Vacation (Hardcover)
Alice-Miranda on Vacation is a delightful book for young girls. It has tea parties, secret clubhouses, horses, and the Queen even comes to visit. I absolutely love Alice-Miranda and am still trying to decide if she is more like Pollyanna, Laura Inglles or Eloise, but I think she is a mix of all of them. She assumes that everyone wants to be friends, and tends to bring out the best in all of the people she meets (minus the occasional criminal who is just plain rude)

This is the second book in the Alice-Miranda series, and I will have to go back and read the first one. I was able to follow the story line just fine, but I did feel like there was a lot of adventure I missed out on. In this book, she goes home for break (from boarding school) with her friend Jacinta. Things have changed around her house, there is an angry boy who has come to live on the property, a movie star is dating her aunt, and not to mention a few mysterious conversations she overhears and needs to get to the bottom of.

The action is slower than in some books, but you love the people in the story so much that it hardly matters. I think I liked Alice-Miranda so much because she is confident but not snobby at all. She stumbles on a mystery that she is intent on solving, but she also still respects privacy and is actually quite honest and direct with people she has questions for. This seems like a great series for younger girls and I will be reading more of them.
