Just how crazy will her college life get? Will Alice’s dream of becoming a psychologist come true? Are she and her BFFs destined to remain BFFs? And with so many miles between them, will Alice and Patrick stay together…or is there a hot, mysterious stranger in her future? As Alice well knows, life isn’t always so predictable, and there are more than a few curveballs waiting to be thrown her way.
This is it. The grand finale. You’ve loved her, you’ve learned with her, you’ve watched her grow up through twenty-eight books. And now everything you’ve ever wanted to know about Alice McKinley will be revealed!
Ope’s Opinion: This was a very long book. Parts of it were deep and fun to read. Parts of it went fast – years past by quickly, but felt rushed. I think trying to fit all of this into one book was a bit too much.
This is one book where you did need to read from the beginning of the series or you would be lost on a lot of the background and the relationships that were wound up in each other.
