 In All But Alice the problem is that Alice wants some cool kids to like her. The way she can is to do what she's told to do like play a prank on her friend Patrick. At the end she decides not to. She doesn't care if they don't like her because she still has her best friend Patrick.
                        The theme of All But Alice is that it doesn't matter what everyone thinks of you it's what you think of yourself.  At the end Alice stopped caring what everyone else thought of her. Also the real friends are the ones who stick by your side. For example how Patrick is always there for Alice.
                        I enjoyed reading All But Alice because it's an exciting book full of real problems. I can really relate to Alice and her problems in jr. high. What I like about Alice books is that they're all exciting novels to read. Also you can never get bored if your reading Alice books.  (Harpreet K., Student)
