In Alice Parker’s Metamorphosis, 13-year-old Alice Parker is experiencing something she never thought would happen to her. First, she has cravings of fruit and sugar, then boiling hot back pains, but the most mysterious change is that she is getting the top marks in class without working for them! Then to top it all off, one day, she falls down in her driveway while coming home from school with one of her friends and finds out why her life has been so strange lately. But this sudden change brings the most dangerous thing she can imagine. Alice realizes that her life has changed forever. But was it for better or for worse?
I thought this book was very good. With every page, I wanted to keep going, and at the end I realized I wanted to read it again and again. The author wrote the book in such a descriptive way that it felt like I was watching a movie. I would recommend this book for pleasure reading and also for comprehension questions because you can see a lot of Alice’s thoughts and feelings. The book was written in the third person, which is good in a book like this because then you see what everyone is thinking about certain situations. I would recommend this book for middle schoolers because it is written about a middle schooler. This book is very exciting and interesting. Between finding out what she is and how to deal with it, Alice goes through many stages of her metamorphosis, so it makes you want to read it more and more, and in the end, you want to go and get the next book.
