Thirteen-year-old Alice sets long- and short-term priorities for her life as she experiences the complexities of young love.

Excerpt/First Sentence(s):
One of my teachers, Mr. Everett, used to tell us, "Be a person who makes things happen; don't just let life happen to you."

Publisher Description:
Alice decides she needs priorities in her life. What kind of future can you have if you don't plan? Priority number one: get Miss Summers, the beautiful English teacher at her school, to marry Alice's widowed father. After all, they've been dating for a year. The only problem is the vice-principal, Mr. Sorringer. He wants to marry her too.

Love, Alice finds, can be complicated, even in her own life. She has been Patrick's girlfriend for almost two years. So why is she interested in other guys?

But Alice isn't the only one with problems. Her friends Elizabeth and Pamela have their own troubles - with family, with boyfriends, and with very personal matters that Elizabeth doesn't even want to discuss. If only there could be one day a week when things would stay the same: no embarrassing surprises. Life isn't like that, however, and Alice has to be ready for whatever comes next.
